My first idea for today’s show notes was to include a few intentional mistakes to show that perfectionism is overrated.
But that’s not the point of avoiding perfectionism, is it? You don’t want to lower your standards to where you don’t care, or to where your efforts don’t measure up.
You simply want to be able to let go of the obsession to fix every outstanding problem, fill every single gap, and check-check-and-double-check everything you do.
Perfectionism is exhausting, and the amount of focus and effort required means you can only do a few things well instead of many things with enthusiasm.
Perfectionism limits your opportunities, accomplishments, and even your connection with other people.
(Let’s face it, if you’re a perfectionist you don’t keep it to yourself.)
In today’s episode, you’ll learn how to identify perfectionism, what it looks in your life, and then discover how to avoid being taken hostage by it.
This Episode is for You if:
- You never feel satisfied with your efforts
- You’re overly critical of yourself and others, and you know it’s causing rifts in your relationships and career
- You avoid doing anything where you are likely to make mistakes
- You want life to be easier, but you don’t know how to let go
- You are afraid people are going to find out you’re a fraud (a little secret: everyone feels this way at least a little)
