Success kid

Last year Copy­blog­ger dis­abled the com­ments on their blog. That’s unfor­tu­nate, because I find their pod­cast The Lede real­ly inter­est­ing. In their lat­est episode they dis­cussed the How to Learn from Your Suc­cess­es. This is my opin­ion on their lat­est episode, 25 min­utes in, while at the same time vac­u­um clean­ing my liv­ing room.

It sounds like what you were say­ing is: when you start­ed work­ing at Copy­blog­ger, you did not feel con­fi­dent enough about your own capa­bil­i­ties. In a moment like this, your new col­leagues should have noticed your dis­com­fort, and giv­en you a lit­tle boost of self-con­fi­dence. Some­thing in the spir­it of: “Hey man, we know you may be doubt­ing your­self right now. But remem­ber: we picked you above all the oth­er can­di­dates because we believe that YOU have the right stuff to pull off this job.”

Moti­vat­ing peo­ple, or find­ing your own moti­va­tion can be tricky. Some­times you just don’t feel like it. Oth­er times your pro­duc­tive spurt is sti­fled by dis­trac­tions. Cre­at­ing a sup­port­ive, under­stand­ing yet chal­leng­ing work­place is a chal­lenge for every com­pa­ny.

By the way: if you (the peo­ple from Copy­blog­ger) are look­ing for some­one with the right mind­set, who is will­ing to work hard, shoot me an email.
