Excessive checking is one of the secret signs of Imposter Syndrome because it is work that is driven by the fear of not being enough and the threat of being found out.
It may feel like it’s best to keep checking. But excessively checking your work comes at a cost.

It undermines your performance and stops you attracting the recognition you deserve. And it makes your job less fun than it should be.
In this episode, I explain what excessively checking your work is, why you’re doing it and I talk about the powerful practical portable tool that will help you stop.
