I’m not the 10x developer I thought I was.

This is the story that I’ve been telling myself, and why I made up that lie.

Today, I realise that this belief of being an efficient developer is not only pretentious, it’s an illusion I’ve been hiding behind for years.

“no timeline in mind” 😇

I have used this story as a plausible excuse to not deal with my insecurities.

The fear of being trapped in the “scope creep” loop of a never-ending project, spending hours talking on the phone or in meeting rooms instead of coding the project.

Not feeling self-confident enough to take important decisions and risks.

And having a hard time trusting others, and believe in their good intentions.

It’s my fault.
