Uncertainty

We rarely know exactly what we’re doing. 

And this is a good thing: 

Uncertainty gives you permission to ask “what if”, to tinker, to wonder, and to wander — all activities that have paved the way for valuable discoveries like penicillin, chocolate chip cookies, and x-rays. 

There’s no need to purport to know what you’re doing; instead have confidence that you will figure things out and learn along the way. 

Express your uncertainty with pride — own it — and welcome the possibilities it creates.
