Fear is the addiction to comfort zone before leaping into the unknown.
Regret is the addiction to comfort zone after leaping into the unknown.
In business, relationships, and art there is always going to be a tingle of the “grass is greener on the other side” syndrome. This is going to drive a ton of leaping into the unknown, whether it’s actually good or not.
And we will make tons of rationalizations post and after the leap, when in fact, it doesn’t matter whether we fear the future or regret the past. What matters is to defeat the addiction to comfort zone before it overwhelms our decision making and cannot leap anymore.
