My scariest post yet

“Who am I to write a blog?” 
“Why would anybody care what I have to say?”
“I’m not qualified to do this.”

Just some of the thoughts that swirl around in my head each week as I sit down to write.

Classic imposter syndrome.

I’ve written before about how I think it’s actually a good thing; i.e. sign we’re acting with a growth mindset.

It’s my assertion that we all suffer from it, but we just don’t often talk about it.

And so here I was, thinking I’d done a good job at articulating this.

Here I was thinking I’d done a good job at leading by example and embracing my imposter by writing about it and calling myself out.

Then a friend* pointed out there’s a way to make my point clearer.

To do the thing that makes my imposter scream even louder.

Add video.


*I’m now questioning said friendship, such is the sick feeling this post has induced.
