Personal Development Speed Rounds: Time Under Tension



Ever been to a pilates class or any gym program and they ask you to pulse in a squat? Then you know how that motion gives you the sweet sweet burn that you probably hate in the moment but love a couple of days later…or maybe you still hate it. Either way, it’s that time under tension that causes your muscles to grow and make a difference towards your fitness goals.

Self-development works with the same gears. Being in the comfort zone provides you with no sense of tension let alone time in it. That’s another key to the puzzle – time. Pushing past your comfort zone won’t cause long lasting change if you are able to retreat back into your familiar place soon after feeling discomfort. A person needs to live in that discomfort enough to learn, adapt, and grow.


When you find yourself in a situation that is hard. And I mean really really hard, but you know that it will make you a better person. Ask yourself this – will I regret it later if I decided to not take this opportunity to grow? If the answer is yes then use that as your motivation to keep on pressing through.
