We are wrapping up the first quarter of 2016 this week. Can you believe it?
It feels like I was just hosting a New Year’s Eve party. For right now my big focus is keeping my comfort zone packaged up like a small box and living outside of it as much as possible.
I have found myself saying yes to more opportunities even when I am afraid to fail. I won’t know what I can learn until I live outside that box.
Dancing in J’ouvert on the streets of Trinidad was a fun leap outside the box. Tossing my hat in the moderating ring was another step outside the box. I just agreed to my first podcast interview for a radio show about relationships. I have been approached in the last couple weeks for advice on how to go after things you want and blogging tips, among other topics.
The first quarter check-in feels good though it has certainly not been without its share of trials and headaches. When I can make forward progress, the day feels purposeful. I am focusing more on intentionality so I can continue to keep an eye on that comfort zone box long enough to push further past its limits. I hope you will take up the challenge and join me.
If you’re serious about it, check your comfort zone box at the door. Let’s make it a meaningful second quarter with the next 3 months of 2016.
How have your first 3 months of this year gone? What goals do you plan to achieve in the next 3 months?
