Let’s shake things up!
I perceive the traditional meaning of Comfort Zone as being similar to the concept of status quo. In Latin, status quo describes the existing state, the current state of things with a slightly negative connotation. When people want to maintain the status quo, they are often resistant to progress.
I believe in challenging the status quo – the traditional concept of Comfort Zone – by shaking things up to enhance our lives. I want to change the conversation about Comfort Zone and inspire people (and myself) to take action, never give up, and make things happen.
Disrupting the status quo
1 – Stop thinking about the Comfort Zone as the status quo. Start assuming the Comfort Zone is fluid. Fluid describes, a person, thing or situation that moves or changes easily. I think the Comfort Zone is fluid and we all have the ability – and I would say the responsibility – to mold it every day and in every situation.
2 – Stop looking for a bridge to reach where the magic happens. Start exploring the best way to shape your Comfort Zone. Each of us has a uniquely personal way to translate the Comfort Zone concept in his or her life based on one’s own experience. One size doesn’t fit all.
3 – Stop questioning progress. Start embracing change. Never stop learning. Value curiosity and creativity. Life is fluid; we can design it. Seconds, minutes, hours, days, years determine our lives, and I believe we must have an always-on consciousness as to how we invest our time.
Life begins inside the Comfort Zone
Our lives start, we receive an education, we learn. We experience the world in many different ways and we develop habits. If we use our curiosity to fuel this system, we can design our Comfort Zone and our lives with the very best inside of it.
