Less Comfortable: Week 1

I’m on the right, diving in like a lunatic

P.S.

  1. It should be possible for me to do.
    Bad example: “Do a full planche every morning for a week.”
    I can’t do that (yet) no matter how much I want to.
  2. It shouldn’t take up an unreasonable amount of time.
    Bad example: “Make and edit a half hour youtube video each day for a week.”
    I still have to do math for a living.
  3. It should be legal, ethical, and safe.
    Bad example: “Climb onto the roof of [insert building]”
  1. Do 500 pull ups in a day.
  2. Try a new food every day for a week.
  3. Have an hour-long political discussion with a Trump supporter (or someone else I disagree with) and try to understand where they come from.
