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.
