We’ve all seen this picture before, and I get the message. Sometimes you have to do things in life and business that make you uncomfortable in order to succeed. But if you’re uncomfortable day in and day out in your normal environment, are you really going to accomplish much?
Here’s my advice: get in your comfort zone. Find out what makes you productive.
Are you distracted in a condo cube environment? Wear headphones or ear plugs. Do you get brilliant ideas outside of the office? Go for a run or head for a coffee shop for lunch. Early riser or certified night owl? Talk to your boss about adjusting your hours or allowing you to handle certain tasks at home.
We all have preconceived notions about how business is supposed to work. Sometimes these long-held beliefs actually make us less productive, less efficient and more frustrated.
So go ahead… think outside the box to find your comfort zone. Hey, it’s where the magic happens.
How do you get in your comfort zone?

Hi Jaime, This reminds me of something I researched for one of my posts:
“According to Csikszentmihalyi, flow happens when the complexity of the task at hand perfectly matches one’s skills, resulting in engaging challenge. This means that flow requires a constantly increasing spiral of complexity and skill to keep that challenge element present.” The post is “Be Your Spontaneous Best Self” http://www.ahhthesimplelife.com/spontaneous-best-self/
I love your suggestions for getting into your comfort zone, and you are so right – it is where the magic happens!
Thanks for the information! I’m looking forward to reading your post. And thanks for reading as always. 🙂
