Episode 14: How to Keep Perfectionism From Ruining Your Creativity

perfectionism

 

 

In this episode Gia and Karen address the issue of perfectionism and how it can destroy our creativity. They’ll share some personal experiences and cover these topics:

  • Nature is filled with chaotic creativity that is perfect in its own way
  • Our feeling that we are not enough causes to identify with what appears to be perfect externally
  • Marketing and advertising exploit our fears of not being enough in order to sell to us
  • Waking up consciously helps us see through the illusion of perfection
  • The ego longs to be perfect because it hasn’t met the Soul yet
  • Tips for coping with perfectionism:
    • Start before you are ready
    • Don’t overthink projects
    • Set short-term deadlines
    • Be done when you are done – don’t keep rehashing a project
    • Set a clear intention for each project at the beginning
