S is for stretchS is for stretch

I first heard the term “stretch” in Barbara Stanney‘s book Overcoming Underearning. It’s when you “go beyond what feels comfortable to what may seem impossible.”

I love this concept because in both parenting and small business, we often have to venture outside of our comfort zone. Scary as it may be, it never fails to result in a feeling of accomplishment or satisfaction.

How did you “stretch” in your day today?

    I went to the gym and tried out a couple new machines. Just going to the gym is out of my comfort zone. It’s an eye opener about myself.

    I did ‘stretch’ yesterday. I had a deadline to reach and was up until 1.30 am to complete it. Not ideal on a daily basis, but sometimes we need to stretch a bit to reach those finish lines. I could sleep much better after that. 🙂

    Good for you! I did take a different bus than usual today, so sort of a stretch? 🙂

    I agree (as I finish working late myself)… I always prefer to work late rather than cut into morning time with my lil one.
