I spoke with Derek Burbridge from Cardero Clothing all about his journey in the first few years of his business. He’s currently in his third year and has a lot of lessons to share with us.
There’s nothing to boost your confidence like getting into the habit of doing something positive. I don’t care if it’s giving up coffee or smoking, hitting the gym each morning, or getting your most dreaded task out of the way by 10 am.
We all have habits we would like to create that will improve our lives, our jobs, or at the very least make things easier for us. But establishing new habits isn’t always easy. It can be hard to get going. I have a simple little strategy that you can deploy anytime you want to cultivate a new good habit.
Do What You’re Good At And What Makes You Happy On A Regular Basis
We all have things we want to do and look forward too, and things we dread doing. Roasting a chicken for dinner may be something you enjoy, while cleaning the toilet doesn’t make that list.
While it would be fun to only do the things we enjoy, that isn’t feasible. What we can do, is use the things we’re good at, the things we enjoy doing, and the things that make us happy to boost our confidence so we have the energy and will-power to do the things we don’t like as much, but that also need to get done.
