Failing upwards

I was writing just to write on this one. Sry 😔

Infamous sex pervert Woody Allen once said “life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering. And it’s all over much too soon.”

He also said “80 percent of success is showing up.”

I’m a living testament of that.

The boss man tells me to show up at such n’ such time and I’m there. Suddenly I’m treated like a goddamn genius. When the boss man explains something absurdly complicated, I just nod and say “yes sir.” Nevermind that I’m undermining the Man at every opportunity, for in that moment I’m able to convince him I’m halfway competent.

So if you ever get that nagging sense of imposter syndrome, just know that that feeling is totally valid: You are an imposter; you totally got to where you are in life because you are a fake, a phony, and absolutely full of shit.

The good news is that’s the truth for every successful person that has ever walked the earth. We’re all lying and that’s okay. Because lies is what makes the world go round.

So go ahead and empty out your bank account, put it all in crypto, and watch it instantly lose value. Then you can live on the streets, smoke crack, and gain it all back by using your last $100 to buy a .45 to set the world right again.

Thanks Woody Allen for the sound advice 🙏
