A Wise Person Once Said…
“It’s impossible to know everything about everything.” [So don’t stress]
In the tech world, so much is going on. How many times have you had a conversation w/ someone that started out with, “Hey did you hear Company X just raised X?” or “Whoa, BigOldCo is in talks to acquire NewCo!” or “Neutron funding is the future of investments.” Sometimes your reaction is one of panic that you’re not “in the know”, and you feel self-conscious that you’re behind. NOOOOO!!!!
When this happens to me, I remind myself of Charles’ advice. Remember that there are plenty of things that you know well. For everything you don’t, turn it into an opportunity to learn.
