Last week, I had a conversation with someone where we clearly had a different understanding of the same term.
That term was “Imposter Syndrome”.
After the chat, I found myself obsessing on how annoyed I was. I think this difference in understanding is symptomatic of a greater issue we face.
The inaccuracy of the language we share.
It’s been a year since I boarded the plane from London to Denver to spend 3 months in Boulder for the Techstars 2018 program and it feels like the right time to structure and share the thoughts I have been working on for the last month.
If you’re considering Techstars and you feel the equity deal might be a little raw or an MD hasn’t gotten you to drink the kool-aid yet, I implore you to read on.
At the end of 2018 I picked up This Is Day One by Drew Dudley. As soon as I finished the book I turned it over and started reading it again. Yes I, Matt Quinn read the same book twice in a row in 2018.
This post is a hefty wade into the exercise at the end, my values and what I am committed to operationalising in 2019. Strap yourselves in folks. It's an authentic, vulnerable and long read.
