"He that is good with a hammer tends to think everything is a nail." ~ Abraham Maslow.

We all have our particular gifts and talents. Our areas of speciality.

We sometimes get stuck focusing within our own area of preference and neglect other areas of our life or business that may require our attention.

We neglect these areas and tell ourselves we are "no good" at them. We might label ourselves as "no good at bookwork" or "hopeless at computers" and we might even make excuses like "that's just me".

There is a direct link between low skill and low motivation.

We make excuses when we are not prepared to put in the effort to learn or change.

We are all naturally gifted in one area or another. Good results give us good feedback and thus we are highly motivated to do things we are good at.

We need to work harder in other areas to achieve results.

Stepping outside our comfort zone is challenging, we must take on difficult tasks to grow.

Challenging ourselves in this way extends us, we grow, learn and improve.

We can learn a lot by collaboration and sharing. 

Are you stuck in your comfort zone?
