Letting Go of Perfection in Order to Achieve Your Goals
This week on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I speak with Petra Kolber. She is an expert in positive psychology and fitness, and she uses this unique background to help companies and individuals find joy, passion, and productivity.
With 25 years of experience in the fitness industry, Kolber has worked with the likes of Nancy Kerrigan, Dana Torres, and George Foreman. She has choreographed and starred in over 100 fitness videos, and has served as a consultant to companies like Reebok, Adidas, Gatorade, and Health Magazine. She is also a highly sought-after speaker, whose practical techniques leave audiences with the tools they need to implement positive changes in their lives.
Kolber is the author of The Perfection Detox: Tame Your Inner Critic, Live Bravely, and Unleash Your Joy. Kolber speaks with me about how being a perfectionist can be toxic, and shares insight into how to banish perfectionist tendencies in order to live a happier, healthier life.
Questions I ask Petra Kolber:
- What does perfection look like?
- What are “perfection toxins” costing us?
- Where do you start with the perfection detox?
What you’ll learn if you give a listen:
- Why comparing your work to others’ highlight reel can paralyze you
- How our negative biases are causing not just emotional, but also physical, harm
- Why perfect is only a word until you attach an emotion to it
