Challenging yourself?

I saw this recently on an internet site I visit and it got me thinking about just how true it is...

In order to achieve our goals, we more often than not have to step outside of our comfort zone in order to achieve them.

What do you do to challenge yourself within QA?

I take on things that I don't know much about, and learn about them as I find the best way for me to learn is by doing. A good recent example of this is working with Espresso, a new API from Google for automating tests on android devices. I didn't know anything about this before I started looking at it, and whilst I'm not a pro at it, I have experience of it, I know how to use it, and I know how to write tests using it, which is what I aimed to achieve when I picked it up at first.

I'm lucky to be in a position where I can find things that challenge me on a regular basis, however I have to say, that if it ever came that I wasn't being challenged, then I would look for somewhere that was challenging me.

So, to re-ask the question, what do you do to challenge yourself with QA?
