Why Do We Need a Comfort Zone Challenges Rating System?
As I mentioned in my earlier post about comfort zone challenges, there will be a rating system set up just to bring all the elements together. If you haven’t read that post, I would recommend you take a few minutes right now to do that. I’ll be happy to wait-LOL!
I understand that each person experiences life differently. I also know there are no absolutes when it comes to comfort zone ratings. I am one person and have my likes, dislikes, skillsets, etc. For one person, learning to meditate may be second nature and to another grueling. What I’m trying to do with this rating system is set up a quick reference system so you have SOME idea of what’s involved in the various comfort zone challenges. Then, you can read more and visit the links I give you to learn more. Then YOU can decide if it’s for you.
My main goal here is simplicity and ease of use. The comfort zone challenge rating system will be a part of every comfort zone challenge blog post.
How Are the Comfort Zone Challenges Rated?
As simply as possible.
I’ll be using a simple five star system to rate activities. One star will be the easiest and five the most involved.
Because I’m a big believer in the power of threes, I will rate each activity by three main criteria.
- Time investment.
- Financial investment.
I’ve already set up the Comfort Zone Challenges category on the blog so you’ll be able to search for them whenever you’d like to try something new.
What’s the Most Important Thing for Me to Remember About Comfort Zone Challenges?
The most important thing I want you to get out of these posts is that you take a hard look at yourself. Whether you do any particular challenge is up to you. However, I want to make sure you’re being honest with yourself. Thoughts like “I could NEVER do that” or “I’m not (fast, strong, smart, etc.) enough to do that” are not helpful nor honest.
Human beings are capable of so much more than they ever give themselves credit for!
Take the time to learn about a challenge then make a rational decision. If you HONESTLY can’t afford something or don’t have the time to practice it per day, that’s important. As long as you’re being honest and not making excuses.
I’ve seen firsthand how much more I can accomplish when I simply decide I CAN do something. Instead of accepting my own script of lame excuses.
Here’s to hoping I can inspire and help you to do the same.
