For a disruptive innovator,
an out-of-comfort zone is a comfort zone.





It is highly important never to stop asking "Why? What If?" questions, even when you think you are too busy for this... Especially when you think so!

Once you rid yourself of conventional thinking you can get on with creating something truly innovative.

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.



Marcus Aurelius quotes

Donít let your imagination be crushed by life as a whole.

Think, See and Listen Outside-the-Box

To think outside the box is to look farther and to try not thinking of the obvious things, but to try thinking of the things beyond them or even other than them.

Thinking outside the box is not enough − you must also develop HIGHERsight and listen outside the box.



See farther by standing on the shoulders of giants

Highersight course by VadiK outside the box intelligence  

"Change before you have to," advised Jack Welch. It is better to create and ride a wave of change proactively than to be invaded by a wave of change.

Change begins the moment you get the courage to step outside your comfort zone and make the most important first step into the unknown.





The comfort zone is a psychological state, a box, in which one feels familiar, safe, secure, and at ease.

You must step out of your comfort zone if you want to change your life or business.
Achievers stretch their capabilities by having courage to step outside their comfort zone and addressing challenges. Laggards bury their capabilities by making excuses to stay in their comfort zone and choosing the path of least resistance.
If you find being outside your comfort zone great fun

"The further you get away from yourself, the more challenging it is. Not to be in your comfort zone is great fun."

ďIf you always do what is easy and choose the path of least resistance, you never step outside your comfort zone. Great things donít come from comfort zones.Ē
