CV of Failures
How often do we go to talks or hear about people's careers and they look PERFECT and stress free with no setbacks?
This idea was started a few years ago after a publication in Nature and has caught on. Personally, I love that this is a thing - too often people like to shine a light on the positives but actually this can be demotivating for others when we don't hear about the reality.
This is something I feel passionately about, I think it contributes to poor mental health and Imposter Syndrome. I feel we need to break down the perception that people who succeed are perfect and have suffered no failures or rejections. It's not a bad thing to have tried and been unsuccessful. It doesn't feel great, but we learn and build up our resilience...what do you think?
