Debugging Yourself: How to Move Forward When the Blocker is You

In the world of tech, we often find ourselves tangled in a web of bugs, blockers, and 404 errors—but what if the biggest blocker is sitting right in your chair? Yep, we’re talking about you. This talk, ‘Debugging Yourself: How to Move Forward When the Blocker is You,’ will dig deep into the human OS. We’ll pinpoint those pesky internal ‘bugs’ that are stopping you from leveling up in your tech career.

Just like debugging code, the first step to personal breakthrough is recognizing that something isn’t working. We’ll explore how to identify and interpret your own ‘error messages,’ from imposter syndrome to fear of failure. Then, we’ll introduce ‘patches’ for these issues—mental tools and reframing techniques that make change not just possible, but inevitable.

So, if you’re tired of roadblocks in your career path that seem suspiciously self-made, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and do a little self-debugging. Because you wouldn’t let a glitch ruin your code; don’t let one ruin your career.
