Day 7: Get out of your fucking Comfort Zone

Chilling dog

Break free from your cozy shell, for goodness' sake! Life is practically begging to be lived, and what are you doing? You're keeping it on hold. What a shame!

If you don't aspire to lead your life with a burst of energy, you might as well plop down on the couch and let the dust gather.

Today marks the glorious 7th day of my Life Transformation Challenge. I've committed to scrutinizing and revamping my life for 50 days. My primary goal is to catapult my efficiency through the roof, to tackle a mountain of tasks. The grand objective? Total freedom, both financially and in my head. I want to savor life and do what I want, when I want.

A week has passed since I embarked on this challenge. Today's mission is to eradicate all comfort zones and symbolically banish the sofa as if it had committed an offense.

From now on, I'll consciously crack the toughest nuts. Discipline is the magic word. But what the hell is discipline anyway? It's simple: Discipline means conquering your inner procrastinator and getting stuff done, even if it turns your stomach.

You can force-feed yourself discipline by deliberately tackling things you'd normally run away from. Here are a few tricks to become the reigning queen or king of discipline:

  1. Drag yourself out of bed every morning before the darn roosters (before 5 AM, even on weekends).
  2. Kickstart your day with an ice-cold shower.
  3. Dive straight into dreaded tasks.

Once you make a habit of tackling unpleasant tasks left and right, you'll soon realize they're not that scary anymore.

Everyone has their own list of discomforts. For one person, making a phone call to strangers is like a horror show. Another person laughs it off and does cold calls in their sleep.

So, the task for today, Day 7, is this: Break down your list of disliked tasks and send them packing.

And one more thing: Bid adieu to your comfort zone. Whenever you catch yourself lounging around or mindlessly scrolling through Instagram and the like, just ask yourself:

  • "Is this really how I want to spend the rest of my life?"
  • "Couldn't I put my precious time to better use?"
