Overcoming “Imposter Syndrome”

The Anonymous Mask – a fairly well known and universal image of movie fans. But how often do we crave the ability to hide behind a mask out of fear instead of Halloween or a hackathon? The desire to cover up your shortcomings by avoiding the conversation, or push back the meeting a little longer until you learn everything you need to. It happens to all of us occasionally.

You will be great because you were great at the last thing you did, even though it was nothing like this.
