From a Fortune article in December 2011:

"When you do something you're not ready to do, that's when you push yourself and you grow," Marissa says she now realizes. "It's when you sort of move through that moment of discomfort of, 'Wow, what have I gotten myself into this time?'"

Fortune's Pattie Sellers closed the interview with Mayer by reminding the audience of wisdom that Ginni Rometty, IBM's new CEO, shared at the Most Powerful Women Summit in October 2011: "Growth and comfort do not co-exist." Mayer would surely agree.

Growth and comfort do not co-exist.

Being right keeps you in place. Being wrong forces you to explore.

IBM's new CEO is also a woman?  Damn, shit is real... But that's cool/awesome. 

Not just IBM but Yahoo (as you know) and Xerox and HP, too.
