What I wish I’d known earlier is that we (women) never think that we get it quite right.  I have a friend, a quite senior legal figure, highly thought of, and she said, “I always think that tomorrow will be the day that they find me out”. I have never heard a senior male legal figure say that. I am sure they think it but they never say it.”
