It is a new year. And this is my first post for the year.
My main resolution for this year is to commit to innovations; reforming and remodeling all the way.
That, of course, includes my blog posts.
So, I decided not to go the usual route of advising my readers on the art of crafting New Year resolutions. As you know, that’s what most writers do in the early days of any new year. Everyone suddenly becomes a New Year Resolution expert, counseling people on what to do and not to do in the New Year.
I decided to junk that track and tell you something a little bit different. That’s a form of innovation, isn’t it?
So, unlike what you may be used to at this time of the year, I simply have one advice for you. This year, resolve to get out of your comfort zone at every point in time. If you get committed to this, every other thing will follow.
Consider these: Losing weight means that you have to get out of the comfort zone of reckless consumption; making money means getting out of the comfort zone of daydreaming without taking concrete actions; and becoming great in anything means disabling your comfort zone ignition and kindling the fire of perseverance in your belly.
Yes, it’s as simple as that.
Of course, I like giving credit to whom it is due. The simple advice I’ve just offered was partly influenced by Seth Godin’s latest blog post. In fact, his entire post is a three-liner that reads as follows:
“Everyone has a comfort zone
“Worth considering: How hard (and how often) are you willing to work to get out of it?
“You can turn that into a habit if you choose”
Seth has said it all. Follow this advice to realize your dreams in 2015 – whatever they may be.
Happy New Year!
