Peter Drucker famously said “What gets measured, gets managed”. What if you could measure your comfort zone? Would this encourage more people to face their challenges and live more exciting lives?
Just imagine if you could actually measure your comfort zone. How big would yours be? Would it be the size of your comfy chair? Or perhaps your living room? Or maybe your basement where you watch a little tv, shoot a little pool and play games on your computer? Or maybe you have already begun expanding your comfort zone and now it is as big as your neighbourhood. Perhaps you have begun doing some travelling and have expanded your comfort zone to include flying and going to many different countries around the world.
Well, you can measure your comfort zone. Check this out.
“In 2012, after a conversation about comfort zones with Derek Sivers, I decided to build this tool as an experiment to see whether measuring comfort zones was possible, and whether it would be useful to people.
Since then, over 24,000 people have measured their comfort zone.The algorithm has also been approved as scientifically valid by registered psychologists at Deakin University. This tool remains free for everyone. My only request is that you take action and do something outside of your comfort zone.”
