It seems all the opportunities I want in life are coming to me before I’m ready for them. I have so much to learn, and I absolutely love learning. I love challenging myself to do better. I’m very driven.
Sometimes though, my drive is a mask to cover the insecurities I feel about my career path.
I want to be perfectly qualified, experienced and confident in my ability. I want to love what I’m doing and know I’m good at it. But I’m no where close. I’m pretty good at faking it, but secretly I’m still dreading the day my coworkers figure out just how little I know. I really am not the best person for my job.
This week I came to the realization this is actually a good thing. In fact, it’s a very good thing. Let me explain.
Interrupting is frustrating. You think you have something valuable to share, but when you notice someone interrupting, you feel rushed for the rest of the conversation to make your point or risk leaving your thoughts floating in your head, unheard.
