When Uncomfortable is Good

Discomfort can be a sign that something is wrong and action is required to fix it. Such is the case when one sits on a porcupine, leans on a hot stove, or accidentally walks in on stranger in the shower. However, there are times when being uncomfortable is a sign that you are finally moving in the right direction. When an individual or organization has grown comfortable and complacent and no longer pushes their boundaries in an effort to improve a little discomfort may be a good thing.
