I just finished college a couple of months ago and I'm taking time out to improve my knowledge. I love programming but I feel like I don't know enough to be confident if I went for an interview. Last night I was browsing through questions and came across a question that asks interviewees how to work out a linked list. I learned these at college but if I was asked on the spot how to do it I wouldn't know. So that's another thing added to the list of what to learn.
This is when the anxiety hit me because I have so much to learn in so little time (at least it feels that way). Upon introspection, I think this anxiety is related to my perfectionism even though being perfect isn't rational e.g. Shakespeare and Einstein failed 80% of the time.
So the questions are, have you felt this anxiety of not knowing enough? If so, how did you deal with it? I suppose there's a point in time when you begin to feel comfortable in your abilities?
