Flipping the Script on Perfectionism
So, I’m not going to lie. I was nervous as all get out to interview Kendra. Why, you ask? Well, because I wanted everything to be…you guessed it…PERFECT! Well, it certainly wasn’t that. Not by a long shot! But do you know what it was? It was an absolute blast and she’s just as amazing in person as you think she’d be from reading her NYT best-selling book or listening to her podcast.
Here are the topics covered in this episode:
- How perfectionism effected Kendra’s life
- Why so many of us tend toward perfectionism in different areas
- Being a Lazy Genius is the antithesis of perfectionism
