Tim Ferriss: Why you should define your fears instead of your goals

“Easy choices, hard life. Hard choices, easy life.”

~ Jerzy Gregorek

“The hard choices β€” what we most fear doing, asking, saying β€” these are very often exactly what we most need to do. And the biggest challenges and problems we face will never be solved with comfortable conversations, whether it’s in your own head or with other people.

So I encourage you to ask yourselves: Where in your lives right now might defining your fears be more important than defining your goals? Keeping in mind all the while, the words of Seneca: “We suffer more often in imagination than in reality.””

~Tim Ferriss from his most recent Ted Talk, April 2017
