📃 Article - Yes, Impostor Syndrome is Real: Here's How to Deal With It
Author: Abigail Abrams
Here's what I learned from reading this article:
Impostor syndrome is when you feel like you don't have any talent or qualifications. You feel like an impostor or a fraud just waiting to be found out.
Lots of types of people can experience impostor syndrome, for instance: the perfectionist is someone who sets very high expectations. If they don't reach their target 100% they feel like failures.
Overcoming impostor syndrome can be done with metacognition (thinking about your thinking), reframing your thoughts, and learning to appreciate constructive feedback.

🔨 Omatsuri Color Shades Generator
Omatsuri is a tool that allows you to generate various shades of a specific color.
This is particularly useful when creating a simple color palette for a design where you use tints and shades of a single color. Instead of guessing the colors, have them automatically generated for you.
Doppler is a free tool that helps you to generate a type scale for your designs.
Simply update the parameters and you'll be able to export the CSS directly into your project or use the results as a base for your Figma design.
🎨 2 Design Tips
Limit line length for maximum readability
Limit the length of your text to 50-60 characters per line.
This is the best length to allow users to easily read.
users have a hard time finding the next line
it breaks the user's reading rhythm
Limit options to avoid information overload
Limit the number of options you display on the screen.
This applies to the features/services section of a landing page.
Too many options will dilute your audience's focus.
