034: Overcoming Perfectionism and Getting Things Done

Perfectionism isn't often discussed in its less favorable light, but it affects so many people learning to code (and just in life!)

In this episode, I discuss my own battle with perfectionism, how it's affected my life and work, and offer some tips to overcome it.

The self-doubt and anxiety that comes along with never feeling like you're “perfect enough” or even just “good enough” weighs down your psyche and keeps you from being great. Beyond just motivational speech, let's take a deeper look at the self-sabotaging behavior that keeps us in place.

It still blows my mind that not everyone deals with this stuff! 🤯

I hope you enjoy, and I'm able to help you in some way today! 🙂
