The Great Gaps

Normalize having gaps in your knowledge.

One of my many bad habits is to say things like “Yep, I know that” to pretty well any kind of criticism. When people point to areas in my work that’s confusing and needs clarification I tend to try to make it seem like I’m already handling it. I’m sure my insecurity is very transparent.

This is a reminder to myself (and to you, reader, I guess) that we don’t have to have all the answers. It’s OK to acknowledge the gaps in our knowledge and in our work. We can take the advice to heart or completely disregard it, that’s fine. But it’s easier to open ourselves to improvement when we admit that we couldn’t possibly see every potential gap.
