I had an interesting conversation recently.
Someone asked me if I was doing face to face work again. I said ‘Not yet, though there’s some coming up later in the year.’
They then proceeded to tell me I was living in my ‘comfort zone’. ‘How come?’ was my response. I got a fairly unintelligible answer.
I’ve always thought about comfort zones as being more in our minds rather than about the physical space where we do our thinking and working.
These days I spend more time actually working. I might be sitting at home, but virtual work and getting to grips with emerging virtual technology takes plenty of energy, while being great fun.
When I’m not working, I spend more time with those I love, doing what I enjoy – learning new musical instruments is a great way of turning discomfort into learning, achievement and joy. Walking in nature nourishes me for the times when I need more energy.
Comfort zone? No, I’m still working hard, learning and growing. It’s all about doing a little better each day, living the present, appreciating what you have and what you create.
