Managing Feelings f=For the Growth Zone

  1. Everyone is just winging it. Even the people you see in social media don't have it altogether and are just building their narratives as they go on.
  2. Be wary of analysis paralysis. There will always be books, podcasts, and articles that will change your perspective but keep in mind to only choose the ones that have the most impact.
  3. Focus on one step at a time. It's overwhelming when we think about the enormity of a new challenge, so it's okay to take things slow until you get the hang of it.

The 3-Zone Diagram
  • The Comfort Zone - this is where you do things where you feel 100% confident in yourself.
  • The Growth Zone - you will be challenged in this area, attain new skills, or use the current skills you have in new contexts. It's easier to face the risk of failure in this zone especially if you have a strong support system.
  • The Panic Zone - in this zone your body's fight or flight response becomes triggered and this zone may cause chronic stress, paralysis, and burnout.

If you're overly stressed out and just unhappy with your work situation then you need to face your fear of failure head on and just walk away.

Sometimes a bad situation is just a bad situation and no amount of resiliency or strength is going to change the fact that you have to remove yourself from that situation. There is no shame in quitting.

How to Leave your Comfort Zone and Enter your ‘Growth Zone’

positivepsychology.com

Divergent and dissident people are the key to growth and innovation. However, some leaders demonize the people who raise a problem instead of solving the problem that is raised.

They do this because it is uncomfortable to see their shortcomings. The problem makes them anxious and afraid, and not knowing how to fix it makes them uncomfortable, causing them to push the discomfort away.
