If you haven't seen Stutz on Netflix, I highly recommend it:

Watch Stutz | Netflix Official Site
In candid conversations with actor Jonah Hill, leading psychiatrist Phil Stutz explores his early life experiences and unique, visual model of therapy.

The documentary profiles Dr Phil Stutz, therapist to Hollywood actor Jonah Hill.

One aspect of the film that stood out to me was Stutz's emphasis on the 3 unavoidable challenges we all face:

  • Pain
  • Uncertainty
  • Constant work

Stutz explains how life can be improved if we accept our challenges and run into them, not away from them.

Starting a business is like stepping into a sea of uncertainty. It's a constant fight to move forward. It takes a lot of emotional energy, and it sure can hurt.

But I wouldn't have it any other way.

I felt a little better knowing that I'm not alone. These are things we all face.

Keep swimming.
