I admit, November's Collective Genius! was a last minute after-thought, hastily thrown out there as I was about to leave for a three week vacation. I did nothing to spread the word and put no energy behind it, and it showed, with only two posts (thanks Rebecca and John!).
The topic was "thriving in the discomfort zone." I think the topic is so important, and such a big part of achieving anything worth achieving in our lives, and so vital to staying fresh and vibrant, that I have decided to make it December's topic as well.
Again, I've talked before about the necessity of venturing out beyond our comfort zones in our careers. Comfort for a short time is a good place to recuperate and rest. Comfort for too long leads to stagnation. Growth only comes from exploring the perimeter and dipping your toes (or hurling yourself headlong) beyond the boundaries.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the discomfort zone. I have a list of questions to prime the pump here. For those of you who are new, you can find out what Collective Genius! is here, and find out how you can participate here.
