When does comfort become a crisis? Do we really want EVERYTHING to be easy?
Michael Easter is the author of The Comfort Crisis: Embrace Discomfort To Reclaim Your Wild, Happy, Healthy Self as well as a writer and editor for Men's Health and Outside magazines, and a professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
He is a leading voice on how humans can integrate modern science and evolutionary wisdom for improved health, meaning, and performance in life and at work. He travels the globe to embed himself with brilliant but often overlooked scientists, thinkers, and people living at the extremes and shares the best of his findings and experiences in books, articles, and other media.
Michael’s work has appeared in over 60 countries and has been endorsed by some of the world’s largest magazines, past directors of the CIA and Navy SEALs, gold medal-winning Olympians, leading physicians, Pulitzer Prize-winning authors, Buddhist and environmental leaders, and more.
In this episode of Success Through Failure, Michael will shed light on why we need “fundamental discomforts” in our lives in order to unleash our full potential.
Like what F3 Founder Dave Redding said, maybe deep in the hearts of men, we don’t want everything to be so easy.
Listen now and let’s go deep into the science of comforts and discomforts with Michael Easter.
