Your comfort zone and where the magic happens. Have you seen that picture that’s been making the rounds on Facebook: two circles, one labeled “your comfort zone,” and another labeled “where the magic happens”? The joke, of course, is that the two circles don’t intersect. They don’t even touch each other. I laughed the first time I saw it. Instant recognition of a nearly universal truth: all the magic happens when you step out of your comfort zone.
