Ep #51: Why Perfectionism Is Holding You Back

In the creative industry, I see way too many people, women especially, who hold themselves back from being the absolute best they can be without even knowing it. How? By being a perfectionist.

I know most of you will relate, but you’re going to be sitting there saying, “Tobi, perfectionism is my middle name.” This week, I want to take the time to highlight how detrimental having a perfectionist mindset is to your energy and creativity. As creatives, this might be the number one behavior to avoid if you want to build a successful business. Don’t worry, I’m going to help you identify whether you’re doing this exact thing.

Join me today as I explore the ways in which perfectionism zaps you of your creative juice to function and feel fulfilled in whatever you’re doing. I’m also sharing how I’ve worked to get out of this mindset and how you can start practicing this too.

If you would like to interact with me and other like-minded people on their journey to optimal health and wellness and who are putting these tools into practice, join us in the Design You Podcast Facebook community!
