Fake it till you make it!

It is true! I fake it till I make it!  And, I’m proud of it!  I am as glad as Smiley-Moustache Guy (SMG) to realize that this has been my faithful mantra.   It helped me become a crack health educator, a loving and competent partner and parent,  as well as a skilled teacher.  And, through it all, I have been working and playing at my art.

Of course, others have discovered and quantified this experience.  Malcolm Gladwell comes to mind:

“In fact, researchers have settled on what they believe is the magic number for true expertise: ten thousand hours.”
Malcolm Gladwell, Outliers: The Story of Success

So, do it now.  Choose your target.  Aim your efforts.  Keep on keepin’ on.  Eventually, your skills will match your fine taste , to paraphrase NPR’s Ira Glass. And,  have a great and glorious trip along the way.  Just like SMG.
