    S2E16 - Perfectionism: Digging Deeper

    In this episode, we will be digging deeper into the concept of perfectionism. If you struggle with being perfect all the time, or have suffered from being held under the microscope of perfect, then this episode is for you. 
    Episode Highlights
    "It is the belief that when we do things perfectly, and look perfect we can minimize and avoid the pain of blame, judgement, and shame.  Perfectionism is a 20 ton shield that we lug around thinking it will protect us, when in fact it's the thing that prevents us from being seen." - Brené Brown, Daring Greatly

    Perfectionism is about perception, and there is no way that you can control perception no matter how much energy you put into it.
    Know the difference between Daring Leadership vs Armored Leadership.
    Have conversations about perfectionism with your teams and clients.
    Teams that are willing to have a conversation about perfectionism will move very far in the effort to combat it
    Practice mindfulness everyday to diminish the hold that perfection has on you.
    Practice characteristics like trust, innovation, creativity, accountability.

    S2E15 - Dropping Perfectionism in Pursuit of Progress

    Do you struggle with being perfect? So much so that you failed to make progress? Perfectionism can be very destructive if we let it, so this episode is just what you need to get it in check.

    Tips to Manage Your Perfectionism


    Planning the perfect experience includes allowing for imperfections along the way.
    Perfectionism is like a dirty word wrapped up in a beautiful package. Because no one is truly perfect.
    If you aren't careful, perfectionism can hurt you, it can destroy your events, and even harm your life and relationships.
    Although recognition is important, opt to plan events from a service mindset instead of choosing to gain specific praise.
    Each time you plan your events or projects, make sure to do it as yourself, and not in the image of what you may think others want you to be.
    Be careful to not allow fear from yourself or anyone else to be placed on you. It is okay to not be perfect, to gain experience, learn and grow.
