The Agitation Advantage: Leveraging Discomfort for Transformation

It’s natural for us humans to avoid discomfort. I’ve heard scientists say that most, if not all, of our actions are designed to move us away from pain and discomfort. Others argue that we also seek pleasure.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s a moot point. We can all agree that we are just trying to feel better.

Scientists also agree that agitation is required for our brains to lay down the new neural pathways for learning.

But wait! Agitation is uncomfortable.
