As 2022 is about to end, all eyes and hopes are that 2023 will be even better in many ways. To be realistic, anything that has to improve needs a minor adoption, correction or change from how it was before. Paradoxically, change is, for most of us, scary as it also sometimes leads to uncertainty. However, the quality of your life will essentially measure how much uncertainty you can tolerate. Too much certainty and you stagnate, and you can even regress. Adapt or remain there, someone once said. Most of us naturally drift towards our comfort zone. You can just put your feet up. This is where you could drive to work with your eyes closed. You know the route; you know the routine. But, if you were honest, you’d say you weren’t really making much effort, and most likely, you are achieving little to notch. Life, perhaps, is even boring. However, the learning and growth zone is the central place where learning and development occur. You must regularly push out of your comfort zone and try new things to keep the brain and body active. Every change starts from within, and for all the changes we are awaiting in 2023, let’s call an exit from our Comfort Zone, wander through the zones, and reach the growth zone. Next time, you can feel confident knowing that when faced with a challenge outside of your comfort zone, you took it on with dignity and had the best time of learning and unlearning you have had in a long time.
