I’m sure you know someone that is “doing it for the rush of it”. Where “it” can be anything from speeding to bunjee jumping and sky-diving.
Well, it hit me recently, while talking to my wonderful girlfriend (I just realized how patient and understanding she usually is): I get my “adrenaline rush” by pushing myself constantly outside of my comfort zone.
Starting with speaking in public, years and years ago, to smaller things, like telling people at Mavenhut that I have no idea what they are talking about and asking for explanations. And if you think admitting that you have no idea what someone is saying and asking for details is not “getting put of the comfort zone”, then you’re not asking too many things in your life. And this is a big mistake.
“My comfort zone is being out of my comfort zone”
Now, joking aside, I really feel good pushing myself to my limits. That’s when I feel that I grow and learn.
Obviously, I do not push all my limits. I admit, I can’t seem to be able to quit on Diet Coke no matter what I do. Or is it just me testing my limit there? :)
So, how are you getting out of your comfort zone today? :)
P.S.: I wrote this post on an iPad Mini using just the virtual keyboard. Talking about comfort zones…
