Currently on a pen testing engagement that has been challenging. I just don’t feel that it is going well for me but I see everyone else on the team is killing it. I’ve realized that I am beating myself up over results that aren’t materializing. There are expectations that I have of myself—not being able to accomplish them are making me anxious.
