It's about your so-called comfort zone. You need to get out more. By "you" I mean everyone. From the truly agoraphobic to the world traveler who can catch a quick nap in nearly any environment, everybody. It is within the realm of the familiar that we languish. Inside our comfort zones we allow our growth to be stunted, we remain in unrewarding jobs and relationships, we pass on opportunities, we feed our gremlins (they are the critters that live in your brain and thrive on complacency, whining, 'yeah but's and fear of any type). The comfort zone, like so much legislation, is facetiously named. If you take a look around your own comfort zone and cannot come up with at least 3 things in it that are decidedly uncomfortable to you, you are most likely in a coma.

There is very little fun to be had in the comfort zone, even the things that truly do provide comfort - love of friends and family, home, security, familiar stuff - are at risk when we refuse to grow and change. I am begging you to venture out, even just a little. Once you get started, it's hard to stop, and, from well outside my own comfort zone I promise you, there's nothing better than that.
