I was chatting with someone I know today and I was telling her about a project that I have been very excitedly working on more than a few years. After about 10 minutes into the conversation, she told me to stop – not what I was saying, but how I was apologizing for my project not being quantitative enough. Her point was well taken.
My lesson: don’t self deflate. You could slow or even stop your progress.
Have a great day,
