Perfect is the Enemy of Good

"And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good" - John Steinbeck

This is KEY to forward movement.

Let go of the perfectionist ideal that is stifling your growth, opportunities, relationships, health, and success.

✔️ Can't do the full 30 minute workout?

Do something else! Try a 15 minute version or a quick walk around the block. It all adds up.

✔️ Ate (way) beyond the feeling of fullness?

Doesn't mean you need to eat everything in sight until Monday when you can get 'back on track". Have a sip of water, take a few deep breaths and come back to yourself. You can start listening in anytime - even in the middle of the day.

✔️ Don't have 20 minutes to catch up with a friend?

Send a quick text to let her know you're thinking of her and will call later. Or call on the way to the store when you have a few minutes to just say hello.

✔️ Your partner doesn't do every single thing perfectly

Here's a tip - no one does. Don't let the little Seinfeld-y quirks weigh too heavy. Look for evidence of all the things your partner DOES do that you love - you'll (both) be much happier.

How could this show up in your life today?
