New Car Speedometer

October 12, 2011

This is a bit of a silly story but still one with a good learning point.

It started when I went looking for a new car. I researched the features that I wanted and I filtered my needs down to one car. Next step, to go for a test drive. The result… I was quite happy. But, there was one thing bothering me. The speedometer and other dials were laid out in a really different style. Completely unnerving. But, I really liked the car.

I immediately knew that this was going to be a great experience. I knew that it was going to take some getting used to. And, it did, for a while. But, with so many things, once I got used to it, I loved it.

Isn’t that so true? The same thing happened when I had to go to a ‘chiclet’ keyboard for the first time with my present laptop. It took a bit of getting used to as well. But, I’m so happy that I chose to take the plunge. It was a great decision.

When was the last time that you had to stretch yourself out of your comfort zone. It might be time to stretch some more. Let me know your story.

  1. This is true about stretching. It happens for me in all kinds of ways. The other day while meeting with my Local Business Development Agency, my rep Luc, let me know about a program for women where I grow my business to a minimum of 6 employees and $1 million over 3 years. My first reaction was of fear, “I can’t do that” I thought. My next thought was “Why not?” I am usually up for a challenge and I can see that this will be uncomfortable and scary at times however in that discomfort is also learning, connection, enlightenment, growth and openness. At some point I become used to and comfortable with the stretching because I want the end result AND the process. So here we go! And I say “we” because I am not doing this alone. I am surrounded by my team – my family, my staff, my coach, my friends, my networking group, my local development centre, and my clients. My joy is in definitely the journey.
