500: Do you have to be in or out of your comfort zone to create good content?

500: Do you have to be in or out of your comfort zone to create good content?

Welcome to Episode 500. I appreciate that everyone is still listening. If you haven't yet, please consider leaving a review on whatever platform you are listening to me.

Today, for Episode 500, I want to talk about the comfort zone.

You’ve probably heard the phrase that we have to stretch our comfort zone. Stretch that comfort zone to be successful in something new. it might even feel uncomfortable, the experts say.

But why does it have to? Why can’t our comfort zone evolve? Does it really have to feel uncomfortable?

I don’t think we have to be uncomfortable to create good content. Sure, when I was a public safety reporter, interviewing families of murder victims wasn't comfortable for anyone involved. Interviewing executives or celebrity influencers might also not lead to a few jitters here and there. And what about trying new content types? Certainly, it won't feel natural from the get-go. The first time I was reporting on live TV, it was weird. No different when I started podcasting or livestreaming the podcast.
