A five part blog series to help you step out of your comfort zone.
You keep hearing people say "get uncomfortable", but how do you actually do it? In this blog series, I share 5 of my best tips for stepping out of your comfort zone.

The push a pull of everyday life has a way of creating a haze and fog in our minds. We often have a hard time remembering; to take something out for dinner, fold that week old basket of laundry, or special occasions in our life. We need clarity because without it, we are literally walking blindly through life.
As you are going about your week, set aside some time just to get clear. Try not to get overwhelmed by all the stuff you have to do, but really sit still and let your mind slow down.
While you are doing this, try to sort through and organize your thoughts, you may want to have a notebook handy for this. Try organizing your thoughts into categories: personal, professional, and other (you can decide what this should be). Once you've started dropping those racing thoughts into these buckets, you're going to want to get clarity about each. This is where you are going to create a vision statement for each of these areas of your life.
Here's an example:
My personal goal is to read at least one book a month, cook 3-4 meals a week at home, get rid of one thing a week that I no longer need, and to spend more time with God.
You don't have to make these statements long. Start small. Keep it simple. Make sure whatever you create means something to you and will help you to maintain clarity going forward.
