Are You Stuck in a Rut?

Do you ever feel you’re in a rut?  You’re getting too-used-to your comfort zone.

In 3 Strategies to get out of a Comfort Coma, a Vistage member shared three strategies to get you out.

  • Recognize that you’ve fallen into a routine, and you can’t spell ‘routine’ without ‘r-u-t.’ Change it.
  • Work on the highest vision of yourself, find a support system of champions, and harness their strength
  • Even with talented people and well-established processes, if leaders don’t foster risk and accept failure, complacency will settle in.

So, as the author says, “snap out if it!”

One way is to find a new set of friends and/or join a new organization with leaders who will inspire you. Another is to take a close look at the culture of the most successful companies you know and see how the avoid falling into complacency routines.  It’s one of the things I enjoy most about the work I do with my three companies: constantly being energized by creative, purposeful people trying to make a difference in their lives and those of others.
