I graduated with a Computer Science degree in May of 2007 and I thought I was hot stuff then I realized I didn’t know anything.
Three and a half years later I still don’t know a damn thing.
I have noticed that I tend to go through cycles of different levels of confidence. One week I will think I can take on any challenge no matter the conditions and the following week I will be wondering why I am not working at Lowe’s.
The important thing is to keep in mind that in both states you are probably wrong. You need the confidence to take on the tough tasks that will help your career but you don’t want to be a dick.
So, walk with confidence and talk with modesty.
