Improve your courage, not your confidence.

Debbie Millman remembers her conversation with a great writer, Dani Shapiro, during which she realised that it’s not confidence that is so important to improve professional life, but courage.


  1. Don’t wait for confidence to arise; take a step.
    Confidence develops naturally when you take a risk.
  2. Be careful with being over-confident.
    People who try to be confident are often perceived as annoying or arrogant.
