My calendar is jam-packed - It’s not unusual for me to work 12 hour days.  As an entrepreneur, there is always something I “should” or “could” be doing. This isn’t a complaint but a declaration that my life is full, busy, and can, at times, make me feel a little over-extended. I am invited to dozens of networking events, happy hours, brunches, awards ceremonies, etc... and as much as I care about each one, I simply can’t attend all of them.

CEOs typically have their minds made up about most things—social issues, business decisions, social issues. Just ask them. Very few individuals will eagerly invite you to persuade them to take on a new perspective. So if you’re going to get someone to change their behavior, actions, or opinion, you need to do it purposeful. Then ten tips can make the difference between stubborn resistance and open consideration:

What is this comfort zone we hear so much about, and where did it originate? You’ll hear people describe their comfort zones differently, but my clients tend to describe it as an emotional state where things feel familiar—a place where they experience low levels of anxiety and stress.
