The most expensive real estate in the world is your “comfort zone”. Why is that? Because of what you give up by spending time there!
Imagine a circle with three rings. In the center is your comfort zone, then in the next ring going outward is your learning zone and beyond that in the third ring is what could be thought of as either your panic zone or your magic zone – only you get to decide which.
In the comfort zone lies all of the things we already know and are comfortable with. In the learning zone we stretch ourselves a little and learn some new things that aren’t a big stretch for us. In the panic zone are things that scare us that we don’t feel good enough to take on. When we choose to grow through this fear we convert our panic zone into a magic zone where real innovation and growth is possible.
Where will you choose to spend your time this year?
