At the end of the day I always feel more confident if I get the general sense that I was productive. That gives me the comfortable feeling of 'mission accomplished'.
I have a hunch that being more productive will also help you to feel more confident. Each and every day!
Here's a free tip:
First thing in the morning, write down the top3 things you want to get done that day.
This should be done before starting to deal with your inbox so that you can have a fresh start, define your own path and decide what is it that you want to complete on this day.
Focus on what is important for you! Even if you end up mixing a little bit of personal issues with business obligations... That's who you are! And that will keep you motivated to advance at a good rhythm day after day.
BEING YOURSELF IS YOUR BEST ASSET. MAKE IT WORK!
Start by making yourself productive/happy: accomplish 3 goals each day.
