I like to think of it this way: I work to exceed expectations, I take enough time to care for my health (sleep, good food, relaxing when I need to, etc), and then I spend every moment I can learning. Thus I’m learning as much as is physically possible for me. If I honestly give my best, while not attacking my health, every single day, there is no way I am an impostor. So far it’s working. I know most developers know more than me because they’ve been at it longer; but I have other skills that other developers don’t have; I was a designer before starting developing.
It reminds me of a piece of advice for college students I read somewhere: “Sleep more than you study, study more than you party, party as much as you can”, only I change the order and add in work.
