There's always someone to tell me the confort zone is a bad thing.
I like my confort zone. I like it alot and it's really hard for someone to convince me of steping out of it.
I DO try new stuff. But only when I'm confortable about trying it.
I believe the "bad thing" lies on never opening yourself to new things. Sitting in a corner and saying: "I'll never try anything new, EVER, no matter what you say."
But you can try new things while being confortable with it.
I don't know if I was clear on my point here, English is not my first language and I sometimes have a hard time with it. So, apollogies in advance if I was confuse.
