Too Busy To Podcast

May 26, 2022

You may have seen posts on social media that say ‘done is better than perfect’ and think that’s easy (I know I did) but for a perfectionist, it really isn’t that easy.  There’s so much more that’s involved than taking messy action and getting something done.  Our guest this week shares exactly what those traits are and how this language on social media can have the opposite effect than intended.   

Rebecca Ann is the Perfectionist Cure Coach and has helped 100s of women unlock their true potential in their life, career & business. Helping to free them of limiting beliefs and constraints that are holding them back from achieving what they want & deserve.  Rebecca is a recovering perfectionist who, in her former days as a lawyer and then a civil servant, lived shackled to the ideals of perfectionism - until she saw its true cost. Having left that life behind she is now committed to helping others free themselves from perfectionism with her proprietary method “The Perfectionist Cure” helping them realise a life of greater success, happiness & freedom. In essence, be more fabulous!   

Rebecca Ann resides in London and works with clients internationally. She enjoys good food & good company, and has a love of rooftop bars coupled with a sunset & a Negroni in hand! She also has a shoe collection which would be the envy of even Carrie Bradshaw!

In this episode, we discuss: 

  • The truth about perfectionism (and it’s not what you think) 
  • The different types of perfectionism and how it can show up differently for each person 
  • The first step you can take towards breaking free from your perfectionism 
  • Reframes you can use to ground yourself when procrastination hits 


Quote - ‘‘I used to really hold on to the belief that I had achieved everything because of my perfectionism. But then when I really see started to see the cost of it, I started to see how actually I had achieved everything in spite of, and as I said, I worked for the UK government and when I left, I was replaced, my job went into five people because I just thought if you're asking me to do something, a perfect person could, I could never rest in my success. So I was always constantly creating that overwhelm for me, where nothing was ever good enough.’’
