According to the law of requisite variety, the survival of any system depends on its capacity to cultivate variety in its internal structures. In other words, you have to keep changing. Prolonged equilibrium dulls our senses, numbs our minds, and atrophies our muscles. Your world gets smaller and smaller until your universe is about eight square feet. Equilibrium is bad. Disequilibrium is good. – Mark Batterson

There is no extra planning necessary within the comfort zone. There is no need for a Plan B, and no reason to be creative or original in this space. The comfort zone is a dangerous place for moldmakers.

What critical decision will you make to guarantee a much different result than the norm? Moldmakers, here’s to abandoning the comfort zone. Here’s to a life of welcomed disequilibrium & change!
