My astrologer wrote about the advice Hitchcock gave Ingrid Bergman,'"If you can't do it naturally, then fake it." I'm going to suggest that you follow Hitchcock's advice during the next two weeks . . . "Fake it till you make it" is an acceptable—probably preferable—approach.'

The way that I am going to 'fake it til I make it' is doing whatever is the absolute minimal and most highly leveraged thing I need to do in order to please the client.  I want my client to be convinced of my competency and work in doing the project.  I want my client to understand I have the right solution and if not, to provide the right solution to use.  For me, faking it til I make it means brushing and flossing my teeth before bed, so that I sleep at night.  It means exercising, the cardio, the squats, the steps.  It means emailing my manager and the leasing agent.  It means taking the garbage out and doing the laundry on the weekend. It means waking up when the alarm goes off, instead of passing out again.  I do not need to be a responsible adult for the rest of my life.  Just this next week.  I honestly believe just a week of pretending to be an adult is going to be enough.
