I recently received a great compliment. “I like the way you’re always up for trying something new,” a coworker said when I agreed to participate in the agency pull-up challenge. So far, I’ve done one. But I feel great.
Mainly because I don’t consider myself someone who’s always up for new things. In fact, my love for my daily routine is borderline idolatrous. But I once heard a man in his 50s who didn’t look a day over 30 say the secret to staying young is always being willing to try something new. He had taken up the French Horn at 40. While I pitied his family, I envied his attitude.
The whole thing got me thinking about an upcoming writing challenge I think I should try because it’s something new. And it scares me. I can’t think of two better reasons to do it.
That’s one thing I appreciate about SWIRE. It’s a company that’s willing to try new things. Willing to support people trying new things. Willing to say “Why not?”
Tried something new lately? If you’d like an idea, I recommend pull-ups.
