Darryl Bachmeier Jun 17, 2020 Productivity

The mention of the word ‘comfort’ instantly conjures an image of bliss, relaxation, happiness and peace. This is a state that many would love to bask in for the rest of their lives, and truly this is a valid wish and aspiration. It is important for one to exist in such a relaxed space once in a while, since the comfort zone is a prize for a period of labor and hard work. The other side that people living in their comfort zone don’t see is that there is more to life than what is obtainable in that little space called The Comfort Zone’.
