What would happen if rock ’n’ roll-activist Pink sang a duet with psychology professor Angela Duckworth about choosing excellence over comfort. Two game-changers’ quotes = great food for thought.
Pink: “Comfort zones are places where average people do mediocre things.”
Angela: “That’s why gritty people train at the edge of their comfort zone. They zero in on one narrow aspect of their performance and set a stretch goal to improve it.”
Pink: “That’s why I want art to make me think. In order to do that, it may piss me off, or make me uncomfortable. That promotes awareness and change, or at least some discussion.”
Angela: “And if you’re never able to tolerate a little bit of pain and discomfort, you’ll never get better. Nobody gets to be good at something without effort, no matter what your aptitude is.”
