All I want for 2019 is... (warning, some real personal sharing coming up)👇🏻
Which makes this year of 12 startups in 12 months a constant mental challenge. While it feels good to launch and create some momentum, I’m also constantly wondering whether I’m creating even more inconsistency in my life. Or if it is ultimately all moving me towards my ikigai.
I’m so thankful to everyone encouraging me and thinking what I do is cool. But there’s a real sense of imposter syndrome - behind each of these launches is a mad (and very uncool) scramble to the finish line and a debilitating fear that what I launch will fail horribly.
If you’re a maker and you feel this sense of imposter syndrome, just remember - you have the ability to create stuff from scratch, that’s already a *huge* advantage. It might take a few swings and misses but many people don’t even get the chance to bat.
Just sharing some behind the scenes thoughts. I’m sure some of you wrestle with this stuff too - you are not alone!
