Have you ever heard that story (legend?) about how George Washington campaigned for presidency by essentially showing up to meetings in his General’s uniform in an effort to look capable and experienced? Sometimes I feel like that’s how I ended up where I am – show up, look concerned (furrowed brows and nodding of the head and all that), don’t say anything ridiculous, and Voila! Competence by association.

I've found that people are WAY more convinced when you ACT like you know what you're talking about than when you actually DO know what you're talking about.
