  • Little wins are by far the most effective way to gain momentum that can stave off impostor syndrome.
  • Submit a code fix even if it's tiny. Tweak the refactor code. Do code reviews - they are a good way to think about how you would have completed a task without needing to complete it.
  • Bug filing also gets you thinking about ways a project can be improved, which may nudge your mind into other ways to make the project better.
