Discomfort

“Too often, we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”  — John F. Kennedy.  

Be cautious with when and where you offer your opinions.  When you do offer an opinion, it’s important to make certain that you have applied due reasoning, reference, and experience.  Offer opinions of more value from a learned perspective at the base of it’s formation.  In my still learning opinion on this topic, I believe this is what President Kennedy referenced as the discomfort of thought.

A high level of discomfort of thought doesn’t mean that your opinion is the right way or the only way.  You’ve just offered your opinion with some credibility and depth.  The right way or the only way is generally somewhere in between. It’s just easier to get to that right point with depth in making the choice.
