The Right Balance between Vulnerable and Confident

Note to future self…

There’s a delicate balance that we need to strike between being vulnerable and being confident. Being vulnerable is important because it allows you to open up to other people, it helps other empathize with you, and it helps you build trust. Being confident, on the other hand, helps others trust you, helps you trust yourself and in the end being confident helps you get stuff done.

What is the right balance between vulnerable and confident?

I am not sure that there’s a right answer to this. It’s not as if either of these two things can be quantified so it might be silly to come up with a metric. I will keep thinking about this topic and write any updates I might have on the subject.

Now back to work…
