Uncomfortable is OK Podcast


Making it easier for you to get out of your comfort zone.

Chris Desmond explores the science, the stories, and the strategies of getting out of your comfort zone and finding your magic.

Dec 18, 2017

I’m joined today by Cam Calkoen. Cam is very inspiring guy who is no stranger to getting uncomfortable. Cam was born with Cerebral Palsy and told his biggest challenges would be the way he walked and talked. Cam didn’t buy in to this story and became a professional runner and a professional speaker. As a 19 year old he raised NZ$4 million to build a community resource centre and at 22 established the carabiner mentoring program. These are a few of Cam’s achievements, but they’re just the end product of one of his life philosophies of doing.


Today Cam and I chat about,
+ the importance of connection with other people,
+ the role that social media can play in this if we use it wisely,
+ the importance of empathy,
+ dealing with the inner voice, the necessity of preparation,
+ finding his Everest,
+ why we should think about what we want to do not what we want to be,
+ and of course getting uncomfortable
