Stay in your comfort zone

“Step out of your comfort zone” is too common to hear.

And a good model to follow to push past boundaries and grow.

Yet stepping out too frequently could mean not paying enough attention to what works for you.

What truly satisfies you.

Here’s an alternative:

Do seek the uncomfortable, but once you’ve reached a sweet spot, once you’ve found what works for you, stay there for a bit.

Or for as long as you need.

Until it no longer serves you. Or it feels too comfortable for your liking.

Then step out again.

Cherish the place you have taken the time to get to.

And only move forward when you think it’s getting out of sync.

As with most things in life, balance is key.
