Advice for ‘Starting Something You Love’ – #4: Rob Cousins

by Rob on February 12, 2011

At the beginning of 2011 we started a campaign called Start Something You Love. We kicked it off on 19th January with our big Esc winter party in front of 600 people at Guanabara bar in central London.

We are now following it up with 365 bits of advice from real people who are doing interesting and inspirational things with their lives. And we asked them all the same question:

ESC’S QUESTION: “HOW CAN I START SOMETHING I LOVE?”

ROB’S ANSWER:

“For me it has been identifying what I love doing. Then having to confidence to do it. Try lots of things, different things, maybe even unusual things for you. Really reflect on how you felt about it, what you liked, what you didn’t. Surround yourself with like-minded people, or people that work in that field. You’ll never be inspired if you only talk to people in the office about officey things.

“Talk to them about you, what you like doing, what you’re interested in. See where those conversations go, and what you learn about yourself and what you’re good at. Be speculative and persistent. The worst that can happen is to get no reply.

“Once you have found something, even if it just feels like a good idea, believe in it and yourself. See what you can grow it into. And be bold when it comes to the all important moment.”
