Impostor syndrome: 3 ways to identify and defeat it

Ever feel like no matter what you do, it isn’t enough? Do you often feel unfulfilled with even seemingly significant accomplishments? Do you downplay praise and compliments? You might be suffering from impostor syndrome.

There are many definitions of impostor syndrome, but here is mine:

Impostor syndrome is the insidious condition that prevents us from enjoying nice things by causing us to feel unworthy of receiving them – even if we worked hard for them. It is a dumb fear of being exposed as a fraud because we are not comfortable with our own genius.

Keep Going, Keep Pedaling

“Keep going, keep pedaling. You’ll ride farther than you expected to go.”

This may be the last post you read on productivity.

I make a bold claim that I can change the way you increase your productivity. I can say that because I’m not a time-management guru or know-it-all. In fact, I haven’t yet mastered the art of productivity myself. I’m still working through it.
