Conscious incompetence can be your best friend, according to Bradley J. Moore:
It can be intimidating when everyone in the room knows more than you do about something, or if you find yourself thrown into a situation where you are in over your head. But it’s not all bad. In fact, I would say that feeling stupid at work can actually be a good sign for your career.
That’s good news—and quite reassuring to yours truly! Jim West would probably say it’s a great cure for dilettantism, but since he’s not here I’ll say it for him.
