18: THE CURSE OF PERFECTIONISM



Today we dive into a topic that is near and dear to both our hearts.  We have both dealt with and continue to deal with perfectionism in our lives and like to think of ourselves as recovering perfectionists.   

Perfectionism is not is not striving for excellence. Perfectionism is not self-improvement. 

Despite that we see the desire to be perfect can often overtake other goals.

Tune in today to hear how we talk about our own experiences with perfectionism, both how we deal with those feelings and where they come from.  The steps we take as we practice parenting perfectionists.  How finding and listening to our authentic self can help deal with our perfectionism? All this and more on today’s show.

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Look back and think about the most recent time you may have set unrealistic goals for yourself. Was it a small expectation you set for a day or was it a larger goal?
  2. Journal how you did.  What was your motivation? How did you deal with that then?  
  3. Talk to your accountability partner.
