Sometimes behaving as though you’re confident, capable, and know what the hell you’re doing is the best way to get yourself to a point where you actually know what the hell you’re doing.  It’s not that you don’t know what you don’t know, stumbling over your own misdirected confidence and persevering by a combination of personality and dumb luck…on the contrary, you know exactly what you don’t know and you’re choosing to blatantly ignore it, at least in public or in front of people who matter, hoping to buy yourself enough time and contact and resources to get it, or at least sort of get it, by the time it counts.
