About Imposter Syndrome

I get this all the time. (Imposter Syndrome, I mean) "Am I doing enough? Am I doing it right? What am I doing?" blah blah blah.

Enough of that. So here's my solution, in case anyone else finds this helpful. I have this book that I love. And in this book, I keep track of things. I write down things I would like to accomplish (like taking that Android Udacity course) or I write down things I am proud of (Like building a watch face) and I also write down things people say. For example, if there is someone I respect very much, and they send out a nice tweet about my work, I write it in the book.
I collect all these things and keep track.
Then, if I ever feel bad (which, trust me, happens more than I would ever admit) I read the book. I read all of it. And by the time I get to the end of the list, I feel better. Even if I don't believe myself at that moment, that I'm doing enough, I believe it from the people I respect, and that helps a lot. It doesn't have to be "I made a bajillion dollars last year" or "I have the top selling app" it can be things like "I learned how to do something I didn't know how to do before" or ANYTHING you accomplish that you're proud of.

Imposter Syndrome sucks - but this helps me, so maybe it will help someone else.

These are some of the comments / messages people have sent to me. This problem is not unique to me. But consider if someone doesn't respond to you or reach out, it's because this is what they've experienced in the past. No one owes you anything, and you don't have a right to anyone's attention. Just because this isn't YOUR experience doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

"In the beginning there was nothing. And a test was written."

No, that's not how test-driven development works. In this #AndroidDialogs +Corey Leigh Latislaw talks about how she uses TDD with Robolectric to write code faster and how you can get started using her Android Katas course.
