"You want to screw up. If you don't screw up when you start out, then you are overqualified for the position. Because if it was anything less than a big opportunity that affords you a ton of growth, then you would know how to do everything that's required. That it feels overwhelming - that you make loads of mistakes - lets you know that you took a big step, that you're learning things, that you're being challenged. Little failures are how you know you're succeeding."

I usually don't read books related to business and careers, but since it's one of my selection areas, I thought I should. This book is actually pretty amusing and he approaches imposter syndrome in ways that are actually useful. I don't agree with everything in it (a few gendered approaches that are probably how it is but that is like to see changed), but overall it's good.· k8s
"Not only should you assume that every email you send will get forwarded to someone else; you should assume that every email you send will someday be read aloud in a court of law." - I actually do follow this approach since I know that all of our work email is subject to open records laws.· k8s
