“’Fake it ’til you make it.’
I love this phrase. There are two ways to read it:
1.Pretend to be something you’re not until you are–fake it until you’re successful, until everybody sees you the way you want them to; or
2. Pretend to be making something until you actually make something.
I love both readings—you have to dress for the job you want, not the job you have, and you have to start doing the work you want to be doing.”
