Three years? Has it been that long?

That is very easy because they are just for me.

Some new initiative that will work even worse than the previous one.

You are a little young to be worrying about old age. Soon you will be in your twenties, the time to be a young man.

That is a good one. He means the bottom.

Basically I feel like I have to have fully mastered every piece of a topic knowing all the relationships to be confident I'm on the right track.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Check the first line of my signature, that is written by a top mathematician. You do not need to know very much about aerodynamics to get on a plane. You just need to know the departure time and what gate it is at. You will be surprised at how little you need to know to solve a problem. It is much more useful to have 10 techniques that you really can do well than to have a 1000 that you use poorly.

Problem solving requires patience, experience and confidence. You learn all 3 by doing as many problems as you can. Do not get the attitude that there are problems that are beneath you. This is another illusion. Do not worry about mistakes, everybody makes them.

I would not worry about such things. No one will see that you have grey hair on the internet.
