I really like this picture, because it makes me think about the meaning of leaving our Comfort Zone. I’m not sure that we always feel fear when we step outside our Comfort Zone. Very often I experience excitement when I have new challenges, and a lack of challenges causes boredom.
What I like the most is the idea that when we are in the Learning Zone we are actually expanding our Comfort Zone. This is a very powerful concept: if we want to grow, we must learn. Unfortunately many jobs require lots of effort but offer few learning opportunities, so that people work hard but don’t really grow.
