How to Break Out of a Comfort Zone and Learn New Things - Bijoy Goswami

In Chapter 2 of 15 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, leadership philosopher Bijoy Goswami shares how he breaks out of his comfort zone. He does this by embracing activities and experiences he normally would not seek. This may mean attending movies he knows nothing about or going to events or conferences not directly aligned with his career or personal interests. The different environment provides the intellectual stimulation he then uses to develop and refine his interests and ambition. Goswami lives in Austin, TX, where he develops models, including MRE, youPlusU, and Bootstrap, to help others live more meaningfully. He teaches his models through community activism, lectures, writing, and online communication. Previously, he co-founded Aviri Software after working at Trilogy Software. Goswami graduated from Stanford University, where he studied Computer Science, Economics, and History.
