“The greater danger for most of us isn’t that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.”
They’re called stretch-goals for a reason.
Are you aiming high enough with your aspirations that you’re pulled out of your comfort zone just a little bit? I hope so, because that’s where the magic happens. When you stay too long in a place of competence you run the risk of falling into complacency and nothing exciting happens there.
Aim a little higher. Feel the discomfort that comes with trying something new. Take that challenging course. Write that edgy proposal. Book that trip. Train for that marathon. You’ll know you’re on to something good if you feel a bit of nervous excitement welling up in you. Besides, that comfort zone is highly over-rated.

High-performers exist at every level of your organization, so what are you doing to tap into your team and unleash their energy?
When you embrace the energy habits of high-performing people you show up as a leader and strive for success in all you do. You take on bigger challenges, and better manage stress. You find ways to take care of your energy – mind, body and spirit – no matter what is coming at you. You feel great about yourself and your capabilities. What’s possible from there?
