An insider's outlook

What happens when you guide yourself out of your comfort zone? Well, several things. But the most intriguing feature of this particular change happens to your perspective of yourself—not others—and that makes all the difference. You stop being a person who thought this and that before doing nothing about either. You begin to act for a change. However, change can be scary too. All of a sudden, you are in a place which is not defined by you. Much against Jack Nicholson’s advice in The Departed, you tend to become a product of the environment because you realize many new truths. One of them being your delay in pulling yourself out your former zone. Because of which, people (read: colleagues) appear light years ahead of you. You begin to resemble that only schoolkid who forgot to do his homework. On top of that, this kid has developed many habits and most of them aren’t good. (On a second thought, there’s no such a thing as good habits as they are seldom addictive.) Now, what is he supposed to do? Well, several things. But the most important one being is his willingness to NOT storm out of the classroom.
