First project & ive been given ownership of a small work deliverable. I feel as though I’m not performing despite the positive feedback from my superiors. Feel as though they are just being nice & come time for feedback/review I’ll get smoked. The temptation to go way above and beyond after hours/weekend is creeping in. Any advice?

LITERALLY no one around you is employed to appease you. So if you screw up, you’ll be the first to hear. Until then - Keep calm and carry on. Also, happy Friday 🍻. Switch off and unwind.
