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:
Lifestyle Comfort Zone Score : 68.6/100

Adrenaline Comfort Zone Score : 66.6/100
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.
