Publisher's Summary

Do you start projects that are important to you, but then abandon them? It is likely unrecognized perfectionism that is holding you back from creating art, starting your new business, writing your book, or growing spiritually. You have big dreams that you keep secret, because you don't want to be embarrassed if you fail at them.
Great news! This book is for you. I will help shake you free of your procrastination paralysis, calm your inner critic into silence, and open you to become what your soul desires. You will recognize and confront your fear of making mistakes and release the creativity-killing -- but deeply held -- belief that you can't go for your goals because of the risk of not doing it just exactly right.
How? Well, I've done it. Personality profile tests showed me very high on perfectionism, and I didn't even realize it. But then I got it -- I understood that this unhelpful internal drive to only do things I could do easily actually stunts my willingness to work on my biggest dreams.
Outside of things like math tests, "Perfect" is mostly a myth. Yet it isn't even just that. You expect to make no mistakes -- or only just a few -- on your way to doing difficult tasks: learning the piano, writing a business plan, parenting, or creating the next hit Broadway play.

Short and sweet

Short enough to finish in a couple days of commuting or on a flight, but packed with insights and helpful advice.
