  1. If being awkward is a super power I must be superman. As a late-diagnosed neurodivergent photographer I’ve always struggled with awkwardness/not fitting in or with finding different things interesting or very much not interesting (looking at you American football). That said, this is great advice. Thinking about it, every founder of every startup I’ve ever worked with and most people in leadership are incredibly awkward people. Those who embrace that seem to be the best people to work with.
