How to Fake It ’til You’ve Kind Of Made It

Lessons learned

1. You will not be able to do everything you planned to

Especially if you’re not fully trained in the field you’re currently working in and have to self-teach to be able to reach a certain goal you’ll have to cut some corners.

2. You need to find your own ideal sources of creativity

Especially in jobs where you need to be creative at the touch of a button, not knowing how to do that, can stress you out even more.

3. When you need help, you need to f*ing ask for it

This might be an obvious one, but man, did I need time to find the guts to do it. Every. Single. Time.

4. Sometimes you are right too (but not very often)

If you can, speak out! Even if it has nothing to do with the field you’re working in, your opinion means something.
