Are You In the Comfort Zone or Chaos Zone?

How do we stay productive and motivated without feeling burned out and overwhelmed?

After running PelvicSanity for 8 years and working with 500+ business owners, we've seen all of the challenges. We wanted to bring you the idea of the Chaos Zone and Comfort Zone - it's really helped our thinking and how we coach!

3 Biggest Challenges for the Pelvic PT Field

Pelvic PT Rising: The pelvic health tools to make you a better clinician and/or a more successful business owner. We want every single pelvic health practitioner to be more confident and successful in your practice and career!

  • Clinical Courses: Game-changing online courses to make you more confident, challenge your thinking and improve patient outcomes

  • Business Resources: Helping 500+ pelvic health practitioners confidently start, grow and build their dream business!


Based on a great framework from Jon Acuff in his book (All It Takes is a Goal), we've found business owners (and, really, all of us!) often fall into one of these categories.

Either we're stuck in our Comfort Zone. It's easy, we're coasting, we're not making changes or pushing forward in our business. To be honest, most of us business owners don't get stuck here.

Instead, we're far more likely to fall into the Chaos Zone.

We're trying to see all the patients + marketing + administrative tasks + payroll + SEO + faxing referrals + cleaning rooms + doing laundry + also being there for our family + working out + becoming a better clinician + finishing con-ed + also making sure we have time to relax. Whew!

In this 'sode we talk about how to split the difference between these to be in an area Jon calls the 'productivity zone.' He gives a fantastic description: "Steady, joyful progress on a handful of goals you care about."

As Nicole said in the full episode:

"You start to get a little uncomfortable with being in the comfort zone where it's like: what are we even doing here? Like what's happening? You've started to itch for change..." - Nicole Cozean
