Imposter Syndrome

This post from Chris Coyier resonated (I’ll save you a click, it reads: “The effort-to-engagement ratio for content is unguessable.”) with me, so I’ll follow his lead;

Last week I saw a tweet from Mr. Bingo that I’ve been thinking about. I can’t possibly stress how true this is. Perhaps even worse for us “seniors” is that we tend to believe that we’re the only senior creatives that feel this way. Starting a new role earlier this year in a new industry, I’ve experienced this more often lately.

It also reminds me of a creative I met at Herman Miller who had never heard of nor experienced the concept of imposter syndrome, and I thought, what a life you must have had.


I write a newsletter every two-four weeks. I'll let you decide if it’s any good but people seem to stay on.
