Something I read today on "one’s personal competence zone" that made me smile :-
I’ve frequently heard adventure sports broken down into three or more "zones" – comfort, competence, adventure and mis-adventure (or disaster!).
In the comfort zone you’re bored.
In the competence zone you’re achieving, but well within your abilities.
In the adventure zone, you’re pushing yourself and learning, close to the boundaries of your skills and experience.
After that, it all goes pear shaped……
Yeah, those times that it all goes pear shaped !
