I did things today that I swear I would not have done before. Things like giving a talk and attending the swearing in ceremony of the Singapore cabinet all alone. And it feels great to be outside the comfort zone. It gives me the feeling that actually accomplishing something.
I should step out of my comfort zone more. Like what Flemeth said in Dragon Age 2, never be afraid to take the leap of faith when the time comes. You'll never know how far you can reach.
"I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn't fail.
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before,
But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much.
I said I didn't care for things like commission checks and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.
If you're in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!"
