The comfortable way to extend your comfort zone

You have heard the expression – “Feel the fear and do it anyway”.

There is often an easier way.

Rather than step out into unknown territory where there are dragons and scary things, reach out and pull a chunk of that difficult thing into your comfort zone.

This is a subtle, yet powerful distinction.

Think of something that you would like to do, but it is outside your comfort zone at the moment.

Think of something you want, but somehow, you don’t feel like actually doing it.

How can you redefine it, or chunk it, so a little bit of it will come inside your comfort zone?

What is that one bit, one chunk, one action, that you could do now?

Do it, and as you do it, you will notice that more bits come into reach.




My best wishes, Paul
