We’re going to shake things up a bit and explore the idea that inconvenience can actually be GOOD for us! That’s right, you heard me correctly. We’re going to dive into the ways in which our modern conveniences may actually be limiting our experiences and keeping us from connecting with others.
“The Comfort Crisis” by Michael Easter is about the ways in which we’ve become too reliant on convenience. I’ve had some experiences in my own life where inconvenience actually led to some unexpected moments of connection and reflection.
In this episode, we’re going to talk about the dangers of becoming too comfortable and the Japanese approach to convenience as a design challenge. We’ll also explore how losing the ability to adapt to changes or challenges can really hold us back in life.
We’re going to break out of our comfort zones and embrace inconvenience in a meaningful way that will expand our experiences and connect us with others.
