  • The perennial problem of perfectionism: It can feel uncomfortable to stop at less than 100 percent
  • The discomfort of striving and failing to achieve perfection vs the discomfort of letting things not be perfect
  • How Janine let go of a perfectionistic temptation to rewrite her client’s spice labels
  • Practicing good enough on less consequential projects
  • Revisiting tasks to make good enough better
  • How Shannon gives herself permission to come back to a task, deeming it “good enough for now” which allows her to stop.
  • The freedom of good enough
