The times change so fast that if you relax, you will always be one step slower than others.
So we have to change forever.
In this article, I will first raise three questions.
1. What is the comfort zone?
2. Why leave the comfort zone?
3. What can I get out of the comfort zone?
What is the comfort zone?
Comfort zone is your familiar environment, familiar people, familiar things.
You repeat the same work every day. You are very knowledgeable and safe about everything around you.
You don't need to think about it. You just need to accomplish a set goal every day.
One of my colleagues, for example, has been in one place since he graduated. He has worked in the same job for two years, then for three years, and finally for five years.
Slowly, he would no longer want to go to big cities or accept new things.
Just stay where you feel comfortable and safe. This is Xiao Wang's comfort zone.
Comfort only makes a person more lazy and gradually loses his passion for life.
02 Why leave the comfort zone?
Not satisfied with the current life, or fail to achieve the desired results, want freedom.
In fact, we just want a better life, or a life we want more.
For example, Xiao Wang, although he has no pressure here, he always complains about low salary and too many demands from his boss, which makes him feel tired.
Life feels worthless, and it doesn't get higher recognition or self-satisfaction.
It's always a state of anxiety, but it's afraid to try.
Only by persecuting ourselves and learning constantly can we master new skills and knowledge, meet the needs of life, get a kind of recognition from work or society, and realize the so-called freedom.
What do you get out of the comfort zone at 03?
Leaving the comfort zone can improve our self-growth, change the status quo of life, and achieve our own goals.
For a small example, one of my colleagues, through continuous efforts, keeps making breakthroughs in his work.
One year's work experience can be worth three years, one year's salary can reach the level that others can not reach for three years.
Although he often changes his job, he never has to worry about not finding a job, which is also a manifestation of self-improvement, and a kind of value.
Another small example is that I typed every time I wrote an article on weekdays.
In fact, I don't typewrite very fast, typing back and forth every day will delete some, so it will take a lot of time.
In fact, typing on the computer is my habit, which is already a comfort zone for me.
But today I suddenly want to change. I choose to use voice to speak. It can improve the speed and realize my ideas faster.
In fact, at first, I was not used to it, even a little exclusive, and always felt uncomfortable.
But when I went from the beginning to the end, I slowly found that voice is really much faster than computer typing, at least the efficiency is really increased a lot.
And in the middle, your thoughts, inspiration, will not stop.
This article also made me familiar with the voice from the beginning to the end.
This is the most practical example, although very small, it is just a trivial matter.
But it also represents a kind of progress, a kind of self-growth, when you have been in place, why not change the way of thinking?
Finally, it will take a lot of effort to leave the comfort zone, but you will not leave at this time.
In the future, it will be difficult to get the word "comfortable".
