Across my career, I've felt bad about my skills sometimes because I'll have teammates, who are also at my level, doing as much as 2x more than me. This has led to me feeling like an imposter many times - Any thoughts on how to process all this?
Thanks Alex for your thoughts. Impostor syndrome is a reality and it’s true that it’s easy to imagine problems that aren’t real. Keeping your focus on what you control, what is important and to communicate effectively with your manager is key.
Yeah, they are the worst. Wish we can just get rid of them! JK :)
I do not care how smart / talented you are, you will always encounter someone seems to be 2x better than you in any regard. Here is how you approach it with a "winner's mindset"
leverage the fear
learn from them
find your own lane(s)
There are good answers already and I would just add my 2 cents that could be useful for such situation:
So I would recommend chatting directly with your manager, express your concerns and ask for a feedback + advice to get over them.
