This past Sunday, we kicked off a brand new series based on Chuck DeGroat’s book Wholeheartedness: busyness, exhaustion, and healing the divided self. We specifically mentioned Brene Brown and some of her thoughts on the problem of perfectionism.
If you haven’t yet heard Brene speak, you have to check her out. In fact, here’s one of her seminal talks that she delivered a Ted Talks conference back in 2010. It’s been around awhile but it still covers many of the central ideas that Brene will often refer to in her talks on perfectionism. Check out what Brene has to say here about connection, relationship, shame, and perfectionism.
