Honing your skills is all about following through. Challenging projects sometimes push you slightly out of your comfort zone. Thats where the magic happens, just beyond the brink of "I've got this".
Whether it be in sports, business, politics, or life. If you've ever experienced that moment when you had to take a second look, make a phone call to a mentor, or make a last second gut decision, and then go with it. You know that the most rewarding accomplishments usually follow this moment of "Following through".
Forming true character follows this same formula, If it was easy everyone you meet would have amazing character. However this is defiantly not the case.
Most of the skills I have learned over years in the carpentry trade, were sharpened just outside of my personal comfort zone. Outside the comfort zone is the place where the most memorable tricks that improve speed and quality are picked up. These are the lessons and feelings of true accomplishment that keep me looking for the next challenge, which in turn pushes me to sharpen an existing skill, or even learn a new skill to succeed.
