The other day, while on my run, I had a mental battle. I wanted to stop, but I know I needed to keep going. I needed to push myself to go further than I had the day before. This way, it would be easier the next day, and in return, I could push myself even further again.
After this, I began to think back over the past few months at the different scenarios where I pushed myself to do something, and in return, I grew from it.
Things like, working out, trying a project at work that was outside my experience zone, and replacing a part on my car that I had not done before by myself. All of these items pushed me outside my comfort zone. BUT, in return, I grew from it. I learned new things. I improved my physical and mental capacities.
It is important to continually push yourself. If something makes you nervous, that is not bad. In fact, you need those items.
Always keep learning. Always keep pushing yourself to take risks, to learn new things, and to go outside of your comfort zone.
The reward on the other side is amazing.
Don’t waste a second by staying stagnant. Life is too short.

As businesses and brands begin to grow, it can become overwhelming to keep up!
You are hiring new employees.
You are launching new products.
You are improving communication to your customers.
All of this requires a lot of work! And, often, it requires the same work over and over.
Most of this repetitive work can be reduced to practically nothing by introducing training videos into your workflow!
Do you notice your customer support is routinely answering the same questions over and over, whether on the phone or by email, to your client base? This confusion can be due to a lack of information that can be easily at your customer’s fingertips. Consider adding training videos to help your customers understand how to use your product or service more smoothly.
Even better, be proactive. As you are considering adding a new product to your shelf, create training videos that help your prospective customers understand the features of that new product and how it will impact their lives. These videos can help increase your sales!
Lastly, any growing team knows the pain of new employee training and training your current team on new systems, processes, or policies that are put in place. Training videos are the prescription to eliminate this pain! Training videos will help you streamline new employee onboarding, and provide a seamless avenue to train your existing team on new information they need.
Below are a couple of training videos Sula Studios put together to help Ecotality reduce some of the same tensions discussed above.
