I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm the head coach for NoBSCoachingAdvice.com.
I want to show a story today about a visit my family and I took to a place
in Asheville North Carolina where we live and the place is called WellPlayed
The Wellplayed and it's a place where they have board games. It's located
on Wall Street downtown in Asheville by the way Wall Street in Nashville is
not like Wall Street in New York but I digress for a moment. They have multiple
wall cases of board games for you to play. It costs $5 per person to play. It's fun.
they've got some munchies and some things training and stuff like that you
can hang out for hours playing things. Now it is interesting they had some of the
well known games and there were tons of games that none of us ever had before
I'm not going to try and mention the names. I'm neither commercial endorsement
for any place or any game but what I thought was interesting is how each of
us responded to doing something new. to playing a new game. Is he we make like
cards. We were playing Monopoly. We may play Scrabble. There Is a lot of things that are
familiar to us but one new game would come out. We'd play for 15 minutes and
someone would say can we looking someplace else and then we come back out
and play another game and a different person would say haven't something
different and I think what it really came down to was we were unfamiliar with
the games and I mentioned this because of how often I know hi and people I know
and I suspect it may be true of you, when we are dealing with someone,
something unfamiliar something we haven't experienced before
we're very reluctant to fully commit to him and when you think about
from the perspective of life, a board game, but how you live your life with time
that behavior is very confining you start to limit yourself I'm picking this
microphone very Intently here. You start to confine yourself to a very small box
of space and limit yourself and what you experience to something way too small. It's
not that these games were so exciting because frankly board games are rarely
exciting right if you get to a point in life where a board game is a board game
Is a board game. But it was, you know , how we just didn't want to commit and get
involved with something new so I'll use that as a teaching for me my family for
you as well perhaps there are places in your life where you've chosen the
familiar way to you often and thus the comfort rather than exploring new things
the comfort zone has connotation to it remaining in the comfort zone is very
self-limiting after a while it involves the conditioning of believing that
safety in a particular place is better than intervention I'm not saying that
the bungee jump off a bridge but there are a lot of places in your life where
you can probably consider doing things differently than what you've been doing
