Shift Your Comfort Zone

Get comfortable being uncomfortable. The only thing constant in life is change.

Hey Product Hunt fam!

I’ve been thinking about how “uncomfortable” the pandemic made so many of us. Some embraced the new way of life but overall I don’t think anyone on the planet escaped the experience without at least a brief moment of discomfort.

Being uncomfortable is part of the journey for entrepreneurs. Take a moment to think about what your “comfort zone” is. Challenge yourself to live outside of that.

I’m constantly inspired by the many founders I’ve been meeting who are pushing the enveloping, and doing things that they’ve never done before.

For example Justin Higgins and his 24hourhomepage art project that he started as a way to push himself to practice his sales and marketing.

How will you push yourself and your comfort zone? Share with me on social or here in the comments!
