Podcast Ep 036 website image.png

Perfectionism is a dirty little secret that a lot of us moms keep everyday. Whether it keeps you in a state of paralysis or shows up as procrastination, perfectionism steal our joy and stops us from making progress.

Effort however is far different than perfection. Effort feels good. The end result feels comforting, even if it's not the "perfect" outcome. You can give your all without the need to be perfect. Perfection comes from the outside. Idealism comes from the inside.

In this episode, I'm giving a little pep talk on how to give 100% everyday without having to feed into perfectionistic tendencies that will leave you feeling unsatisfied.


  • The difference between perfectionism and effort.
  • How (and why) you should be detaching from the outcome.
  • What you can do in every situation to make progress over perfection.
