Episode 36: Feeling Satisfied

Feeling satisfied–even when something isn’t perfect–allows you to embrace a good-enough mentality. This week, Janine and Shannon discuss the importance of finding (and recognizing) satisfaction. Feeling satisfied doesn’t lead to complacency–in fact, it’s life enhancing.

Discussion topics include:

  • Janine’s shocking (to Shannon) inability to tell a joke
  • How feeling satisfied is an important aspect of a good-enough mentality
  • Looking for places to feel satisfied without perfection
  • Paying attention to what you can do instead of what you can’t do (and feeling satisfied with that)
  • Shannon’s post-concussion challenges and how she is trying to feel satisfied with what she is able to do
  • Gratitude vs satisfaction
  • Setting yourself up to feel satisfied by putting the brakes on perfectionism
  • Applying this concept to your task list (hint: include tasks instead of projects on your list and keep the list short)
  • How being satisfied with less than perfect doesn’t make you complacent
  • The fact that feeling satisfied can actually enhance your productivity
  • How you can feel satisfied with something while also looking to improve it (which Janine is proving with her new yoga practice)
  • Cultivating the habit of finding satisfaction in where you are, rather than waiting for satisfaction to find you
