At what point are we going to stop making compromises and grow tired of being average?
Maybe we like average?
We say we want to eat healthy, but look around, do we really?
We say we want to raise our performance level, but what have we sacrificed recently?
If you are, indeed, tired of average, why not work at a place where everyone is smarter than you? Why not apply to the school that you know you would be challenged at? Why not have a conversation with a person you have nothing in common with? Why not take on a project that is way out of your comfort zone? Why not...you get the point.
It seems that there is really only one question left to ask, are you REALLY tired of being average?
It's a rhetorical question, but your answer will manifest itself through action (or the lack of it).
