  • The short answer You Can’t
  • How I’ve felt before • I’ve felt threatened by the knowledge of others • Put myself under immense pressure to learn • Been judged for not using the latest thing • I’ve doubted my own abilities
  • The good news You don’t have to
  • You can look at it differently • Only learn what you need to • Keep it relevant to your situation • Store material for future learning • Take advice on board, but don’t be a sheep
  • Don’t worry, be happy “To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.” – Confucius
