Perfection is the enemy of good. I’m sure we’ve all heard some version of this saying before, right?
We often get consumed with the picture of the perfect thing we want to achieve: the perfect day, the perfect workout, the perfect nutrition, etc.
This idea of perfection can be crippling and stressful because we never have perfect control over everything.
So we do nothing.
And this causes stress and feelings of failure.
As my colleague Jenn Broxterman says: “imperfection is realistic, allows for progress, and can leave you feeling proud that you’re doing the best you can on any given day.”
