Your comfort zone is your dead zone, by Ann Handley


Instead of talking about Content and Marketing as Ann usually does, for this talk Ann motivates and inspires people to jump at the opportunity to do something that scares them.

Ann shares stories from her childhood and recalls the things that scared her.

Thinking back, she realised that when you opt out of the things that scare you, and make you uncomfortable, that it’s more than just getting a bad letter grade…in a way you are failing at life.

Your comfort zone is your dead zone if you don’t push yourself beyond it.

Ann shares 3 things to do to get you our of your comfort zone:

  1. Ask: So what?
  2. Assume people love you – If they don’t, assume they just don’t know you well enough yet.
  3. Follow your fear – often the thing that scares you is the very thing that is worth doing.

Enjoy this talk from Ann and DFTBA!

Chris.
