My example comes from my job. I am a professional trader in the Forex market and to put it in brief there are millions of ways that I can approach the market on a daily basis. I can be a scalper (one that looks to collect on one tick at a time) or a swing trader (one that enters a trade and holds in for days, weeks or even months), or a day trader (one that closes all of his positions at the end of each day) just to name a few. There are also just as many strategies or techniques to use in the market. I've been trading in the Forex market for about a year and a half now, and in that time, I'm pretty sure I've tried out almost every method there was following what everybody else said. It wasn't until about a month ago that I looked at my personality and really adjusted my methods to fit what type of person I am. Ever since I made that change I've felt so much comfortable on a day to day basis. And go figure, my results have improved as well. Comfort brings confidence, so if you have the chance in your daily routine, try to execute tasks the way that feels most comfortable to you instead of doing it stride for stride through another person's vision. If you have the chance to have some freedom take advantage of it and see how much better it feels.
