I acted just like I did back in school. Or worse. I waited for the last possible moment before I started preparing the talk. When I finally started with the slides, a little perfectionist devil Manuel sat down leisurely on my left shoulder, telling me that this crap is just not up to my own standards. I worked long hours the night before the big day, and woke up early just to be able to rehearse the whole play before entering the stage.
Of course everything worked out just fine. Well, besides me saying basic-a-lly all the time. So why was I so freaked out? Well, I was obviously leaving my comfort zone.
Now the interesting thing beneath all that personal drama I'm ranting about is that I suddenly realized for how long I did not really step out of my safe little comfort zone. Granted, applying at Google is not the most un-stressful experience I ever had. And obviously starting a new job with all those bright people around me did not exactly make me fell warm and cozy.
But at that very moment I stood there, my peers gazing absent-mindedly into their laptops, my hands slightly sweating, I suddenly realized that ever since I started working I was doing everything exactly in the way I was most comfortable with. And that was kind of a shock.
Of course after giving the talk I felt great. I had known that in advance, but I realized that without being nudged enough I'd probably have tried to wiggle out somehow.
- It's easier to step out of the comfort zone when somebody kicks your ass.
- It's a long way from leaving your comfort zone once to real change.
- I must learn how to leave my comfort zone on my own.
Do you know tricks that make it easier to leave the comfort zone?

The free translation is "keep cool!" :)
Look back in your life...and a university talk it's very easy... :)
Great luck for the next one!
Moving away from our comfort zone is the only way to introduce real changes in our life/job/etc... and although i completely agree that the "ass-kicking" method always works :) sometimes the best advice come from Nike famous line "Just do it", don't think about how uncomfortable you are or about doubts and uncertainty, just do it and do it now.ReplyDelete
Searching for advise? Here's the HOWTO:
Kehamilan biasanya kabar yang sangat di nanti bagi pasutri . Namun bagi pelaku hubungan diluar nikah mereka beranggapan masalah dan akan mencari solusi dengan cara menggugurkan hamil akibat perbuatannya . Dengan mencoba mengkonsumsi buah nanas muda maupun pepaya muda ia anggap sebagai makanan yang dapat menggugurkan kandungan agar tidak terjadi hamil . Jika usia kehamilannya sudah masuk 4 bulan keatas tentu sangat sulit dengan mengkonsumsi buah tersebut . Lantas , bagaimana cara menggugurkan kandungan kuat yang usia kehamilan sudah lewat 5 bulan ? Sebaiknya konsultasi saja ke dokter kandungan . Didalam menjalani hubungan intim wanita juga ingin sekali mengalami klimaks , maka dari itu para pria harus berusaha untuk cara membuat wanita cepat keluar agar tercapai kepuasan . Pada setiap wanita mengalami yang namanya siklus menstruasi pada setiap bulannya . Dan ternyata wanita juga mengalami mimpi basah tidak hanya pria saja .ReplyDelete
