Given the unfortunate lack of rental optimists available to us at present (perhaps in a Level 3 scenario?), our bubble members are just going to have to harness whatever proportion of optimism we possess, brush up on our personal optimism skills, and call our optimists on a regular basis for a good dose of brightness.
How perfectionism keeps us stuck:
- It keeps us avoiding and procrastinating: If I can’t do it perfect (and I know I probably can’t) then why should I waste my time doing it at all?
- It’s attached to shame with a constant feeling of “Not-Good-Enough-ness”
- It keeps us trying, stumbling, self-deprecating, and unfulfilled
- It keeps us hustling to manage the unwanted perceptions of others
- It’s a creativity killer
