Whatever activity we do, it will bring results. One of them is the creation of a comfortable atmosphere or so-called comfort zone.

Each person has a comfort zone with different portions. Many remain in their comfort zone situation even though it means that they are in a no progress zone.

However, there are also those who choose to challenge their comfort zone, and have become much more successful because of it. It does not mean leaving our workplace, because there are so many activities we can do to overcome boredom in our daily work!

1. Start Small

Begin change in any area that you want to improve by doing small things. For instance, at least changing our appearance when going to the office.

The goal is not to change ourselves or our personalities. It’s just that we are trying to find a new atmosphere so as not to get bored. By getting used to change for small things, we will be trained and ready when we have to face big changes in life.


2. Find New Challenges

Getting out of comfort zone does not mean you have to change or quit the current zone. For instance, in your career, you don’t need to quit your current business, or change professions.

Instead, in your spare time, you can try to find a new thing to learn or do that will challenges yourself. But remember, you must do it without disturbing your current job.

If you allow yourself too long without new challenges or targets, the job you are in or the business you are nurturing will feel bland.

Set new targets and goals that can spark your fighting appetite when you manage to unravel a challenge. When you achieved your challenges, you will find it satisfying and victorious. Hence, you’ll craving for more challenges that can grow yourselves.

3. Strong Intention

Every activity must be based on a strong intention. When you choose to move out of your comfort zone by making changes, you should do so with consistency.


Or if you choose to stick with your current job, you also have to base it with strong intentions. It may seem cliché, but life is a choice. Strong intention will help you face the consequences that arise because of it.

4. Self Evaluation

Evaluation is necessary when you want to change. First, you need to know whether all the goals in your life have been fulfilled, or at least you are currently in the process of achieving them.

Check whether the activities that you have been doing in accordance with your vision and mission. If not, then there is something you need to fix immediately. Don’t put off what you can do today.

5. Face Your Fears

We definitely have a sense of wanting to go forward and develop. This feeling is what drives us to make a change. But besides that, we also have fear, especially about failure. Change always seems scary the first time you do it. This is very human. But when we do, it’s not as scary as we thought.

6. Take Up a New Hobby

There are many activities that you can make as a new hobby in this world. Take one!


Especially when you start to feel bored with your work, and need to just entertain yourself. There are many things you can do, one of which is taking up your new hobby.

You can do other things like join a community. Not only doing new things, you will meet many new people who could be your business relations in the future.

7. Do Your Best

Do everything that is your responsibility as well as possible. This will not only produce maximum results, but also be an added value when your boss sees the extent of your discipline in doing your work. Those who can be trusted with small things will be trusted to endure big things in the future.

8. Seize Every Opportunity Given to You

Opportunity is something that cannot be separated from a change. Opportunities are provided for us to take as steps towards the best results. The same opportunity will never come twice. So don’t waste every opportunity that comes. Who knows that opportunity is the way to achieve the success that you want.

9. Be Wise

You need to be wise in doing every activity. Not only when deciding something, but also when you are facing difficulties.


The problems that come must be seen from various points of view, do not blame others or yourself, and focus on solving them so that every problem we face can be resolved in a way that is relevant and does not harm anyone.

10. Expanding Your Network and Insights

When we choose to leave our comfort zone, it does not mean that we immediately decide to leave anything related to our current job. We have to think about whether we choose the right science and a wide network.

Because when we leave, whether we quit our job or leave our comfort zone in a different way, we will be faced with a completely different world. Therefore we need to expand our networks and insights.

11. Do Something Different

The term of change, of course, is different from what we usually do every day. Try to write down the things we usually do every day. Anything that feels the same? We can try by starting out of the same activity. We will find new things outside of our habits every day.

12. Have an Optimistic Attitude

The importance of having a sense of optimism in every change you experience, do not give up in the current situation.


Keep going and moving forward, because every change is not possible instantly, all need a process. It requires a sense of optimism to achieve the goals you have set. So, are you ready to get out from your comfort zone?
