{18:32} Don’t put yourself in a situation that feels uncomfortable. We talk about it our,
the way we teach it is you are all on a comfortability curve.
{19:26} That’s the secret formula, it really is you don’t have to do something that doesn’t if it makes you feel uncomfortable. You don’t have to do it.
