Monocycle: Episode 40, Am I Comfortable or Complacent?

In partnership with Squarespace.

In case you have missed tuning into the monologues that occur inside the (membrane) walls that define my head, welcome back! Here we are! With a fresh new episode of Monocycle that outlines a recent question mark I’ve been shopping around — how different are comfort and complacency? Can they be regarded as one and the same? I ask because the details of my job description have changed with the introduction of a few key hires and for the first time since I launched Man Repeller, I feel like I have time. It is such a unique and profound luxury, but more and more I have been wondering whether I am adjusting appropriately to this newfangled time. Have I become more comfortable? Absolutely. But is that comfort bringing on this curious sense that I might be complacent — that is, uncritically satisfied with myself? Am I being too judgmental? Not judgmental enough?

Or is this just, like any other adjustment would require, a time of transition?
