We’re all figuring this out right now was what I always believed. Turns out I didn’t know what I didn’t know.
None of it mattered anyway – I had a job to do! And I did that job and my clients were happy. I created open source libraries, helped people and I even got a job at Microsoft – all the time believing I could learn what I needed to learn to get the job done.
