Discussion on: Doing my bit to tackle imposter syndrome

It's easy to get lost in impostor syndrome when we look at other people and they are doing very flashy stuff, or are bragging extensively about their work.

What I like to do is keep a record of good things that I've done and have gotten recognition for like:

  • my app winning an award
  • finishing my sprint on time without bugs
  • my colleagues giving me a good review
  • a client saying nice things about me

and so on.

When the syndrome hits, I look at all these things and remember that one bad day doesn't define my career and it doesn't make me a bad developer.
