How to Confront the Three "R"s They Didn't Teach in School
When you see the phrase” the three Rs”, you may have a couple of things that come to mind. Back in the day it was an educational phrase that referred to the “reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmetic” we learned in school. More recently it’s been used to describe how we can help our environment when we “reduce, reuse, and recycle.” Lately, I’ve been using it differently in some of the talks I’ve given. If you’ve seen any of my stuff, you know I often write and talk about our tendency to become so comfortable in life, that it might hold us back from really living. As a general rule, we don’t like to be uncomfortable. In fact, we spend a lot of time, effort, and money trying to figure out how to not be uncomfortable. It feels so much better in our gut when things are comfortable. It’s when things become too comfortable that we start to coast through life and drive ourselves into a rut we didn’t even know was there.
