Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

"I don't deserve this”, "I'm not enough", "I just got lucky" are common thoughts people with imposter syndrome have. Imposter syndrome is when a person thinks they are not worthy, nor deserving of their achievements. They often feel self-doubt, that they’re incompetent or that they’re a fraud.

Avoid Burnout and Have a Good Work-life Balance
Resisting hustle culture and prioritising your mental health is vital. When everything is done and dusted, no one is going to remember your late-night work cram sessions or your working overtime 24/7. They will remember the memories they made with you and the person you were outside of work.
