Starting a business is by far the hardest thing I've ever done. It never ends. There's always work to be done, skills to be learned, and stones left to turn. When you combine that with the stresses of daily life - bills, family, work - and it can become overwhelming.
That's why Impostor Syndrome has been particularly annoying. I'm very rarely the best at anything, but I'm pretty competitive at most things. If something interests me, I learn about it, and I try it out. After a while, I get better.
Launching a startup isn't that easy though. It's not always easy to measure progress, which can get pretty discouraging. It helps to be able to visualize the journey because you know there's an end in sight.
Startups don't work that way though. You have to be flexible and willing to pivot. You can't be sensitive to criticism, or unwilling to change.
You also have to balance that with keeping your vision and being tuning out the noise and opinions of others.
Basically listening to everything and nothing at the same time. Easy, right?
