What’s your impostor type?
Your impostor syndrome is not a uni-dimensional and predictable beast. It shows up in ways that, at a first glance, seem perfectly sensible, almost reasonable! I mean, of course you want to deliver perfect products to your client, why shouldn’t you, right?
Well… it’s right up until the point you keep postponing to hand in your work because it’s not perfect yet… or until you start researching a new method to deliver the same results, procrastinating on doing the actual work.
Your impostor is sneaky and clever and it will often trick you in thinking that you’re working harder and better while it’s making you paddle in the kiddies pool as hard as if you were in the ocean.
Not fun, right?
It wasn’t fun for me either and it took me a while to recognise that my desire for perfection was instead my fear of failure creeping up.
I often joke that I’m a recovering perfectionist and it’s so true. It took all my willpower to release this content AS IT IS. I’m prioritising progress over perfection but it’s always a work in progress and I need to keep focused on the end goal otherwise it’s easy to fall back into old patterns.
