Are you really an expert?
I’m not an expert at anything.
I think we use the word expert before we go to University, but after we go, we gain the humility to see ourselves on a constant journey.
I’m really good at editing now, but I still don’t consider myself an expert.
I consider myself an experienced professional with endless room for growth and improvement.
I still ask for advice, I still defer to a higher ranking editor or sometimes the thoughts of the writer.
I don’t think I’ll ever consider myself an expert at anything, always on a journey of improvement.
There’s just too much to know.
