    Ep.54 Perfectionism Is Holding You Back: How To Achieve AND Be Highly Productive [SOLO EP]

    enSeptember 18, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Finding Great Candidates on LinkedInLinkedIn is a valuable resource for finding top talent, especially those not actively seeking new opportunities. High standards are important, but striving for perfection can hinder productivity. Social media can create unrealistic expectations of perfection.

      LinkedIn is a valuable resource for hiring professionals, especially those who aren't actively seeking new opportunities. Sandra, a potential candidate, emphasizes that she wasn't found through other job sites because she wasn't actively looking. In fact, over 70% of LinkedIn users don't visit other leading job sites. This means that businesses that only post jobs on other sites could be missing out on great candidates like Sandra. Another key takeaway from the discussion is the importance of understanding the difference between high standards and perfectionism. While having high standards is important, striving for perfection can actually hinder productivity and efficiency. By letting go of the need for perfection, individuals can focus on maintaining good quality work while still getting it done in a timely manner. Additionally, the conversation touched on the impact of social media on our expectations of perfection. It's easy to get caught up in the pressure to present a perfect image online, but it's important to remember that perfection is unattainable and can lead to unnecessary stress and anxiety. Instead, we should aim for high standards while recognizing that perfection is not a realistic goal. Overall, the discussion highlighted the importance of utilizing LinkedIn for hiring, understanding the difference between high standards and perfectionism, and recognizing the impact of social media on our expectations.

    • The Dangers of PerfectionismPerfectionism can lead to inefficiency, burnout, and unrealistic standards. Instead, focus on doing our best and moving on to avoid unnecessary stress and increase productivity.

      Striving for perfectionism can lead to inefficiency, burnout, and unrealistic standards. While it's important to have high standards and produce quality work, the obsession with perfection can prevent progress and cause unnecessary stress. Instead, focusing on doing our best and knowing when to move on can lead to greater productivity and less burnout. It's essential to recognize that perfection is an unattainable goal and that accepting imperfections does not mean lowering standards. Instead, it means understanding that done is often better than perfect, and that we should prioritize our time and energy effectively. By recognizing the difference between high standards and perfectionism, we can avoid the pitfalls of burnout and disappointment, and focus on producing work that meets our goals without sacrificing our well-being.

    • Aiming for perfection can lead to burnoutFocus on maintaining standards to delegate tasks, hire employees, and achieve a sustainable work-life balance

      Striving for perfection in business can be counterproductive and lead to burnout. Instead, focus on maintaining a standard that allows you to delegate tasks, get your weekends back, and continue growing your business. Hiring employees is a necessary step for growth, but it requires careful consideration and preparation to ensure a good fit. Don't wait until you're burnt out to hire, as this can lead to mistakes and compromised standards. Remember, perfection is not about doing everything yourself, but rather about achieving a sustainable work-life balance that allows you to maintain high standards in the long run.

    • The Importance of Delegation for Business GrowthRecognize when to delegate tasks, hire or outsource to scale and prioritize effectively. Perfectionism and long hours can harm your business and career.

      As a business owner or professional, it's essential to recognize when you need help and start delegating tasks. Trying to do everything yourself can lead to burnout and unscalable high standards. However, the process of hiring and training employees or outsourcing work is a learning experience and can ultimately lead to a better business overall. It's important to understand that only you can fully embody the business vision and prioritize tasks effectively. Perfectionism and insanely long hours can harm your career and work in the long term, so setting realistic standards and priorities is crucial.

    • Setting priorities and communicating effectively are key to giving your best effortPrioritize tasks, set boundaries, communicate with team, manage self-doubts, and effectively negotiate prices to give your best effort and grow in your career.

      While it's important to give your best effort to all your work, it's not possible to put 100% into everything at once. Prioritizing and setting boundaries are crucial to ensure you're giving the most important projects your full attention. Communication with your team or colleagues can also help manage expectations and delegate tasks effectively. Additionally, understanding that it's normal to have self-doubts and learning to manage them can lead to better performance and growth in your career. Ryan Reynolds' example of negotiating prices with Mint Mobile showcases the importance of setting priorities and communicating effectively, even in personal situations. Lastly, using platforms like LinkedIn to hire professionals can help small businesses find the best candidates and grow their team.

    • Recognize and affirm your inherent worthInstead of seeking validation through productivity or output, recognize and affirm your inherent value to alleviate self-doubt and build sustainable relationships and success.

      Striving for perfection in every aspect of life, including work and relationships, can stem from feelings of self-doubt. However, constantly trying to prove your self-worth through your productivity or output is an unattainable goal and can lead to burnout. Instead, it's essential to recognize and affirm your inherent value and worthiness, independent of external validation. This can help alleviate self-doubt and enable a more sustainable approach to work and relationships. It's natural to have high standards, but it's crucial to avoid disregarding potential good matches due to unrealistic expectations. Maintaining a balance between having high standards and being open to growth and connection is the key to building meaningful relationships and achieving personal and professional success.

    • Setting Meaningful StandardsHigh standards can help us grow, but comparing new experiences to past ones and striving for perfection can hinder us. Recognize and address patterns of fear and self-doubt to confidently pursue goals.

      Having high standards is important, but it's essential to ensure those standards are meaningful and not based on arbitrary or unrealistic expectations. Comparing every new relationship or dating experience to past ones can set you up for disappointment. It's crucial to differentiate between high standards that help us grow and learn from those that hinder us or prevent us from connecting with others. Perfectionism and fear of failure can lead to procrastination and self-doubt. It's essential to recognize these patterns and work on addressing the underlying emotions to pursue our ideas and goals confidently.

    • Balancing high standards and actionHigh standards are important, but aiming for perfection can hinder progress. Practice self-belief, invite feedback, and become comfortable with criticism to make decisions and take action. In business, quick decisions are necessary, but difficult decisions may require more thought.

      While having high standards is important, aiming for perfection can hinder decision making and progress. Self-doubt and fear of criticism or failure can also prevent us from making decisions and taking action. To overcome these obstacles, practicing self-belief, inviting feedback, and becoming comfortable with criticism are key. In the business world, making quick decisions is often necessary to avoid burnout. However, if a decision is difficult to make, it may require more thought and consideration. Overall, striking a balance between high standards and action is essential for productivity and growth.

    • Understanding the Impact of Perfectionism in the WorkplaceRecognizing the power of perfectionism and harnessing it in a way that benefits individuals and organizations by fostering open communication, setting realistic goals, and embracing imperfections.

      Perfectionism can be both a blessing and a curse in the workplace. While having high standards can lead to excellent results, imposing unrealistic expectations on yourself or others can lead to stress, burnout, and even employee turnover. It's essential to understand the impact of perfectionist expectations and learn to channel your perfectionist tendencies in a productive way. Managers play a crucial role in setting realistic goals and communicating effectively with their team. By acknowledging the time and effort required for projects and being transparent about priorities, managers can create a healthier work environment. Ultimately, it's about finding the right balance and recognizing that striving for perfection doesn't always mean achieving it. Additionally, the discussion highlighted some striking statistics, such as 86 percent of people believing perfectionist expectations impact their work, and a third of employees considering leaving their workplace due to these expectations. These findings underscore the importance of addressing this issue in the workplace and promoting a more balanced and sustainable approach to productivity. So, in essence, it's essential to recognize the power of perfectionism and harness it in a way that benefits both individuals and organizations. By fostering open communication, setting realistic goals, and embracing the imperfections, we can create a more productive, engaged, and fulfilling work environment.

    Ep. 86 How To Change Your Relationship With Your Finances Forever With Vivian Tu

    Ep. 86 How To Change Your Relationship With Your Finances Forever With Vivian Tu

    Vivian Tu wants to change our relationship with finances forever, and her story is incredible. Vivian is a first-generation Asian American, who grafted her way to Wall Street, facing misogyny and racism on her way. She spent years on the trading floors, making the kind of money she always dreamed of, in an environment where she was one of only two women on her team. When she left finance & moved into a strategy role, she noticed she was always the go-to person for money-making questions, tax returns, investing, pensions. Becoming increasingly worried by the amount of dodgy information regarding finance online, she started making her own educational content under the handle ‘Your Rich BFF’. Now, she has over 6 million followers and a best-selling book to her name. She says her aim is to teach everyone the “lessons that rich dads have been teaching their rich sons on the golf course." I can’t wait to speak to Vivian about her story.

    32: 6 Unexpected Lessons I Learned in Lockdown

    32: 6 Unexpected Lessons I Learned in Lockdown

    I’ve been thinking about one of the biggest dangers of personal growth these last couple of weeks.

    The danger is this: we learn a crucially important, life-changing lesson, and then forget all about it and move on with our lives.

    Any one of us could fall into that trap this year. Like me, you’ve probably had some realizations about your life during this difficult time.

    Epiphanies about changes you want to make, or simple truths that you want to take forward even once things return to “normal.”

    But the integration of these lessons and truths into our lives going forward is no guarantee.

    In fact, for most people, it’s much more likely that nothing will change. Think of that, we were just forced into a giant reset, the likes of which we may never have again in our lifetimes. And yet, most people will go back to living the same lives they were before once the daily stresses, invites, and activities return. We simply cannot let this happen.

    So what can we do?

    Well, the first step is consciously taking stock of what those lessons are, and codifying them so we don’t forget them. In this week’s episode I reveal 6 of the unexpected lessons I’ve learned in the last 3 months...

    Come see if any of mine are the same as yours. And, in the process, write down what yours are. I can’t say this enough: do not move on from this moment in time without bottling the lessons and taking them with you, or all of this pain and struggle will have been for nothing.

    #167 - How To Get Your S**t Together When You Feel Overwhelmed

    Do you ever feel overwhelmed by your life? Like you have so much to do and you're always busy, but also like you're not actually getting things done? Or, worse, are you SO busy that things are actually starting to fall through the cracks? Eek!

    If this is a "pain point" for you, too, I hope you join me on this episode, to learn about:

    • What types of core belief and approaches to life lead to feelings of overwhelm
    • How perfectionism and over achievement is correlated with being LESS successful
    • How stress leads to anxiety (and too much anxiety leads to paralysis)
    • The type of mindset that helps you do more (and feel happier at the same time)
    • How to recognize when you're spiraling into burnout and how to stop it
    • How to do a "hard reset" on overwhelm and start getting things done
    • How to get reconnected to your true values, goals and priorities
