3 Ways to Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

In your future job, you may very well be asked to do something that is outside of your comfort zone. This could be giving a presentation in front of a large group, working on a project with a large team, or going solo on a project. No matter what the task is, being able to step out of that comfort zone and complete it is essential for long-term career success. Here are 3 easy ways that you can start getting out of your comfort zone this summer, and expand your horizons and opportunities.

 

  1. Subscribe to a magazine/online newsletter you usually would not read

It can be a cooking magazine, a business one, or even a fun magazine. Expand your knowledge, learn new skills, and all the while, challenge yourself.

 

  1. Join an organization you normally would not

If exercise is a struggle for you, join a running group! Maybe you can never finish a novel, then join a book club. Perhaps you don’t like working with groups, then join any club or organization. Or even join a professional organization and gain access to contacts and build skills for your future. You will be building a community, bettering yourself, and could even learn a new passion you didn’t know you had.

 

  1. Take a class that challenges you

Pick a skill you want to learn that has nothing to do with your major! Employers will be impressed that you took the initiative to enroll in a course on your own. This is also a great chance to step out of the bubble that is your major and learn some great new skills. Here is a website with links to great skill building courses that are free!
