“The stimulus for the lobster to grow is that it feels uncomfortable.”

Embracing the stress of discomfort is often the path for all forms of growth…personal, professional, physical. A process going back to at least the Cretaceous period 140 million years ago when lobsters first appeared. Let’s hope that the stress on our society from the current pandemic will also result in some silver lining of growth with better preparedness, healthcare resourcing, appreciation for science and community action.
