Should you stay safe and comfortable in your life – especially since everything is working great? Or is it better to seize the adventure, mixing things up and initiating the changes you’ve been yearning to experience?

Moving beyond the relative safety of your couch, step away from the television or book spouting other people’s creations and create something awesome of your own. You only have time to lose and you’re letting that slip through your fingers already anyway.
