Imposter

I seem to be living the life of an imposter.

In living the Christian faith, I've never felt like I was quite getting it right.  So, I attempted to learn more about discipleship from writings, audios, videos, and exemplary others, so that I would be "faking it" less and "getting it right" more of the time.  Each day makes me feel a bit less the imposter, but I'm not quite there yet.

In serving in leadership roles in various settings, I've never felt like I was quite getting it right.  So, I attempted to learn more about leadership from writings, audios, videos, and exemplary others, so that I would be "faking it" less and "getting it right" more of the time.  Each day makes me feel a bit less the imposter, but I'm not quite there yet.

In being a father, son, husband, brother, grandfather, and friend, I've never felt like I was quite getting it right.  So, I attempted to learn more about relationship management from writings, audios, videos, and exemplary others, so that I would be "faking it" less and "getting it right" more of the time.  Each day makes me feel a bit less the imposter, but I'm not quite there yet.

In serving as teacher, coach, principal, superintendent, and professor, I've never felt like I was quite getting it right.  So, I attempted to learn more about teaching and learning from writings, audios, videos, and exemplary others, so that I would be "faking it" less and "getting it right" more of the time.  Each day makes me feel a bit less the imposter, but I'm not quite there yet.

In being a responsible steward of the planet, I've never felt like I was quite getting it right.  So, I attempted to learn more about nature and systems from writings, audios, videos, and exemplary others, so that I would be "faking it" less and "getting it right" more of the time.  Each day makes me feel a bit less the imposter, but I'm not quite there yet.

It seems the only path out of the quagmire of impostership is more learning.  

Here goes...  (Please forgive me as I continue to fake it for awhile.)
