Comfort Zone

Comfort zones are beautiful things. My comfort zone is like a warm bed- inviting and cozy. But it's not productive, and it's not challenging.

Each year, I challenge myself to do one thing that's very much outside of my comfort zone. I strive to reach for something that is unfamiliar, and that I'm not entirely sure I can actually accomplish. Last year, I participated in a 22-mile nordic ski trek and spent the entire time so far from my comfort zone that I barely recognized it upon my return. But when I finihsed, I stood a bit prouder, and I carried that sense of accomplishment with me throughout the year.

This year, I've got a few options, but nothing solid yet. I look for just the right thing that will allow me to grow, experience, and learn.

I'd like to challenge you to do the same. What is one thing you could do that would lead you beyond the boundaries of your comfort zone?
