Too often do we take part in discussions about topics we actually don't no much about. Especially on the internet. And especially during the pandemic. I would have loved to have heard the following sentence more often: "I do not know".
We're all experts at something, but none of us are experts at everything. So please join me in this little practice of telling us – but even more importantly yourself – what you no nothing about.
This can be something you still want to learn but also something you will probably never learn. This can be about programming, obviously, but doesn't have to be.
As a bonus, think about people who do have the skills you find yourself missing. Or think about people, maybe your colleagues, that you believe are more successful than you are. Focus on your feelings towards them. Do you admire them? Or do you maybe also experience some envy? Just ponder on these emotions for a while and see how they mix. Simply being aware of these feelings will help you become more professional. Just acknowledge that you don't know everything. There will always be someone who can do something better than you can. And that's okay. It's perfectly fine.
Allow yourself to be passionate about your work but aim for a professional detachment. You are not your work.
