Stay on the current path, assume no risk, never grow, but always be safe.
Or take the hit.
Forgo the billing for two weeks to work on that new idea.
Take a leap into a different job category to learn more about an emerging technology.
Volunteer to learn something new.
Take less vacation.
Whatever it is, take the hit.
We grow through taking hits, by trying something new, by taking the hard path, by getting up when we fall down.
We stay the same when we do none of the above, taking none of the risks.
Take the Hit.
