#037: The Problem With Perfection

Do you struggle with the need for perfection, or are you impacted by others with this affliction? In this episode of The Possibility Podcast with Mel Schwartz, Mel explores why some of us drive ourselves — and others — crazy pursuing what is both unachievable and harmful to a life well-lived.

He explains the source of this compulsion and how we can release the need for perfectionism. As Mel puts it, “The closest thing in life to perfect is being able to be present in the moment. The irony is that the perfectionist is never present. They are analyzing their past or worrying about future decisions.”

Listen in for many insightful tips on how to achieve balance in your life and release the burden of perfectionism.
