In this talk, I discuss imposter syndrome, fear of failure, and how to combat them; I follow this up with a discussion on ways to cope with (inevitable) failure and benefit from it. Feel free to take a look at the slides and a rough script if you want to know more about the content.
I've given this talk at a number of meetups around town, and it's always lead to lively and insightful Q&A and audience discussion, which is always my favorite part.
I never know what to write in these spaces without sounding either trite or phony. Probably the easiest way to learn about who I am at the moment is by taking a look at my Twitter profile, though my wife is arguably funnier, better looking, and smarter than I am and my 5-month-old son is certainly more adorable.
