The Sneaky Truth about Perfectionism

I don’t know if you’re like me, but I’ve had a bad habit most of my life. It’s called procrastination. It seems like one of the most common complaints my friends and clients have about themselves. We all do it and yet, we hate that we do it.

What’s up with that, right?

See, procrastination isn’t about laziness. Did you know that? Procrastination is actually rooted in perfectionism, the fear that if I can’t get it perfect right now, I shouldn’t even try. And so we don’t. Does that feel familiar to you? It does to me.

In this short, 10-minute training, I share what perfectionism has looked like in my life and what I’ve been recognizing and doing to change it. Hope this realization helps you as much as it did me.

Want to explore your perfectionism further and get out of the procrastination rut? Let’s do it. We can connect in a free initial coaching session here, or schedule a counseling session with me in my private practice by calling 785-539-5455 to request an appointment.
