day 2 of my feigning confidence experiment. it’s off to a rough start so far. we all were sitting across from each other in this conference room. at the conference table. i guess it was my turn to speak, but i asked the people around me if they could wait another week until i had more confidence in what i was going to say to them. i mean, i knew what i wanted to say, but i just could not at all sense if now was a good time to say it. if they could only give me one more week.
And the people just stared back at me, not blankly at all, i just could not read their expressions. i thought, well they’re not asking me to leave. but that doesn’t necessarily suggest that they want me to stay. and how can a person tell the difference? i knew then that i had entered an unconfident moment.
