A similar quotation is that "Progress is found outside your comfort zone." Basically, the quickest way to learn is to put yourself beyond your comfort zone. If you keep doing the same thing all the time, then you'll keep getting the same result.

For me,that meant saying yes to jobs outside my immediate area of expertise so I could develop professionally. Recreationally, I learn to be a better surfer by surfing on smaller boards on harder waves.

Like that.

It mean take that leap... If you only counted pennies all your life, try counting quarters... It usually makes for more dollars. I'm in accounting, can't you tell.

Learned that lesson the same way. Don't just do what you know, do what you want to do.

Pushing yourself to do something different! In terms of dating...that means dating someone you would normally write off. Not lowering your standards, but maybe you have a thing for Asian chicks, so get away from them and date a white gal. Get it? Or maybe you have a pattern of dating women who are high maintenance, so try dating a gal that is more outdoorsy and independent.

It means try to do something new. Don't always stay with what you know. Push yourself to do something that you haven't tried before.

It means that you should take risks, calculated risks. I have never turned down a promotion, no matter how much more reposibility it presented.
