Out of the ‘out of the comfort zone’ comfort zone.
Ever been told to get out of your comfort zone? Ever felt worthy, proud or self-righteous when you step out of the boat?
Perhaps all this ‘abandon-the-comfort-zone’ chat is bunk.
I love to see people in their element.
The girl who sold me petrol yesterday; the tour guide on the Sound of Music tour; Robert Peston, children in a paddling pool…
It’s great when people are in the right job: when the talents and the passion match the task.
Maybe I’m back to that psychiatrist in a movie played by Robin Williams that hung out in a freezer who said: “you either are a smoker or a non smoker; find out which one you are, and be that.”
Maybe all this lack of tolerance of pushing the boundaries is indicative of my general risk aversion. Perhaps too many people in comfort zones leads to … a lack of space travel?
But, I suggest that for some, that is their comfort zone. Therefore they should be in it.
What’s your comfort zone? Would you be a better person if you left it?
