I'm pretty confident about my abilities until I make a mistake and everything gets out of hand. You do make a really good point, though. In retrospect, everything I've done feels trivial. Guess my problem is more about not being able to keep my cool.

Now that conclusion feels trivial! Thanks. ;)

    You'd be surprised how willing people are to help you succeed.

This doesn't really match my experiences with my peers (would rather fail than accept my help, would rather be smug than help me), but I guess it fits a few other people with who I study. I'll take a leap of faith since if both you and klein say stuff like this, then there has to be some truth to it. Thanks again.

Well, getting help from your peers if your peers aren't readily available is something to be prepared for too. If you're desperate for assistance, offer someone some pizza or some shit. I know I'll do anything for pizza.

If I was in a leadership position and needed someone to take literal weight off someone else who was clearly having a bad time, I sometimes had to motivate them with an incentive. I earned myself 3 milkshakes and a fuckload of various nicotine products because my peers knew the ways to my heart.

Just stuff to think about.
