I personally think that you should push yourself out of your comfort zone in controlled situations, were you know you have nothing to lose. For an example if going out your comfort zone in a presentation that was supposed to be straight and to the point then it’s not your best idea. If there is a situation where you know what you are talking about and want to expand on it then by all means go for it. Also it depends on your personality, people who are shy should defiantly push themselves all the time. People who are more outgoing and know that they don’t really have a comfort zone don’t usually have to.

The results of my comfort zone is:

My comfort zone is above a 66 for the most part so I’m not doing too bad. I could approve on my professional comfort zone. I could learn more about what I want to do and focus more on how I’m going to do it.

  1. Personally, I always try to step outside my comfort zone. Living on the edge is always more fun to me because you never know when you will get the chance to do something again. School wise, being more creative, giving that extra push or doing better on a presentation are always things Im willing to work at and step out of my comfort zone.

  2. Everyone should get out of their comfort zone once in a while because it comes with new opportunities whether it’s with school or making friends. Coming to college definitely gets you out of your comfort zone as you’re away from home and have to figure out most things on your own now. Getting out of your comfort zone now is something that will be help you in the future as well when it comes to professional decisions and getting your future jobs.
