NOCZ

I’d like to coin an acronym today.  NOCZ.  It looks cool.  It’s currently only used by the National Oil Company of Zimbabwe Ltd (Harare, Zimbabwe).  So it’s pretty primed to become a popular acronym.

NOCZ stands for Near-Optimum Comfort Zone.

  • It’s that spot that you sit in where you think you know how to do your job until you find out that you don’t and there’s been a better way the entire time.
  • It’s that epiphany you get when you realize that you could have done something 15% or more faster/better than the way you’ve been doing it the whole time
  • It’s where you are right now, compared to where you’ll be in a few months.

I’ve written about this before, but I didn’t have a cool acronym at the time.
