The paradox of trying to improve or change your personal style is that you're not going to like how it looks at first.

It's going to feel different – you're going to think it's too tight, or too loose. The colors don't match right. But the thing is, if you don't allow yourself to feel that, you'll never change.

You'll never improve: Your style will always stay the same. And that's how you become one of these dads who are still wearing their same clothes from the 70s.

So let yourself feel it. Let yourself feel like it's wrong.
