Be too comfortable + too long

    Hello everyone,

    Does the phrase "be too comfortable" (to be so satisfied with your achievements that you don't make much effort to improve - my definition) + ''for too long'' sound natural/correct in the example I made below?

    After getting my master's degree, I was too comfortable for too long and didn't try to get a better job. Now that the company has closed down, I am having trouble getting a new job.

    Thank you in advance!

    It makes sense to me. It expresses the idea quite well.

    Thank you for your answer.

    I had thought that "too comfortable for too long" would be too wordy.
