I realised quite recently that any Professional Confidence I have comes not just from knowing more. It is bolstered just as potently by me being comfortable with, and openly admitting, what I don’t know.
Never in my life have I been more comfortable saying, ‘I haven’t got a fucking clue…’ than I am today.
I used to feel vulnerable when I didn’t know about the next big thing or the last big thing.
I find saying, “I haven’t got a clue what you’re on about…’ quite cathartic, actually.
Try it! It might work for you, too.
