Hm...."faking it" is not a strength for me. Maybe I need to work on that.
Wait. That could imply that everything I've written on this blog is true. Ahem. Well, ok, maybe I'm better at "faking it" than I thought. When it comes to blogging, let's not call it "faking it". How about embellishment? Or exaggeration? Yeah, that's better.
No, Evil Twin, I'm not misspelling "fake." The post is not about "effing it", 'K? I think that would be an easy post to write as I'm sure must people have wanted to say that about something in their lives at one point or another, usually involving an employer.
Most of us have also "faked it until we've made it" a time or two, knowing that we need to appear confident and "with it" when we really feel completely clueless and afraid. I know I've had to do that a few times in my corporate days when I was standing up in front of group of people leading a IT requirements analysis session. Not that I didn't have the skill, I just didn't have the confidence or was learning a new part of the business. It still happens, occasionally, when I teach fitness classes, usually when I have to teach a different format or face a room full of cold stares when I'm subbing for a favorite instructor.
Oh, and I bet some of you think that Evil Twin is fake. Well, er, maybe. Then again, maybe not.
