While I consider myself a master of a few skills, I wouldn't ever rate my competancy at 100%. There's always advancements being made, standards being redefined, and being mindful that mastering a skill has no ceiling can lead to excellence.
Everyone struggles to stay motivated. I curb this by having a realistic approach to issues and to overdocument progress and set-backs. I use a divide and conquer method if the problem is ever increasing and seems impossible to solve.
Growing up and through college I worked in the food service industry. This experience has taught me a lot about how a positive attitude can have a huge impact. I remind myself of this daily, whether I'm dealing with radiologists, engineers, and co-workers.
