Richard Fenton, co-author of one of my favorite books, “Go For No,” said, “Your comfort zone is either shrinking or expanding, but it never stays the same.”
It’s either/or, but it’s not neither nor.
One question to ask yourself right before making a decision is, “Am I shrinking or expanding in this moment!”
Playing it safe, selective, or judgmental only tightens the bands of “comfort,” until you’re a shadow of what you once were or could‘ve been.
You can’t shrink your way into greatness. It’s time to get back into the expansion business.
