Richard V. Battle, author of Navigating Life's Journey: Common Sense in Uncommon Times. He was appointed by Texas Governor Rick Perry to The Texas Judicial Council and The Texas Emerging Technology Fund.
It was a scene most Americans thought would only happen in other countries; after a very contentious election process had finally begun the formality of official certification, angry protestors, supporters of President Trump, stormed the U.S. Capitol grounds.
Soon, there was a fatal shooting inside the complex, scuffles between protestors and police, elected leaders and their staffers were forced off the Senate floor and into emergency shelters, IED teams and armored vehicles joined thousands of protestors and police on the Capitol grounds and National Guard troops from DC, Maryland and Virginia were deployed to regain control.
Was January 6th 2021 bad for our democracy? Of course. Could it have been worse? Always. So says author and expert Richard Battle, whose latest book “Navigating Life’s Journey-Common Sense In Uncommon Times” seems tailor made for today.

It’s estimated that over 30% of the world’s population struggles with perfectionism. Alarmingly, perfectionism in American, Canadian, and British college students rose by 32% between 1989 and 2016 alone. For many, these habits start even younger.
Yet for adults and children alike, the drive to “be perfect” comes at a price, including low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and even life-threatening physical ailments.
No one knows this better than self-professed perfectionist JULIAN REEVE, whose high standards propelled him to the top 1% of his industry as music director of the Broadway hit Hamilton—and triggered a heart attack shortly after.
Now a healthy, healed, and sought-after speaker on perfectionism, Reeve offers fresh perspectives on how perfectionism is both perceived and managed. He’s standing by to share:
Why addressing perfectionism is vital for our health and prosperity How reframing perfectionism helps us achieve more in healthier ways The key word that unlocks our perfectionistic potential Why perfectionism can make or break a business—and what leaders can do about it Strategies for parents to help young perfectionists develop robust and healthy coping techniques early on JULIAN REEVE is a former music director of the Broadway musical Hamilton turned perfectionism contributor, speaker, and author of Captain Perfection & the Secret of Self-Compassion: A Self-Help Book for the Young Perfectionist.
