Imposter by design

The things worth pursuing are difficult, likely to fail, don’t have a script, a map, a recipe or a user manual. They are also likely to be creative or innovative endeavours that nobody else has done before – at least not in the way you are about to.

Knowing all this is true, how can one not help but feel like an imposter? You are making things up as you go along, so how can you not feel that way? And yet, when that feeling comes along, why do we fight it?

The feeling of being an imposter is a good sign that we’re doing something worthwhile.
