Do Something That Scares You!

June 7, 2018

Career Advice

Why would I do something that scares me? Because it’s good for your career! We’re not sure if there’s any scientific evidence behind this one, but it’s safe to say that when you step outside your comfort zone, you learn something about yourself. Agreed? It’s also a good practice in overlooking perfection–and you might inspire others along the way.

Here are some ways you can incorporate a little “danger” into your work day:

  • Apply for a promotion.
  • Set up a lunch with someone you admire at work.
  • Sign up to attend a conference.
  • Ask for a raise.
  • Apply to speak at a conference.
  • Give feedback you’ve been too afraid to give.
  • Join a club or committee.
  • Sign up for a creative class.
  • Ask for feedback from your boss and coworkers.
  • Give a speech.
  • Organize a new club or committee.
  • Read a book on leadership or self improvement.
  • Try a new look via a new wardrobe or hair style.
  • Raise your hand for a project that you’d never have considered previously.
