Our perfectionism often makes us think that the work we’ve produced isn’t good enough and that we need to re-do it. This usually turns into us doing our work over again and again. And when we get into this habit, it’s very disheartening to even approach a task so we only end up procrastinating on it and putting it off.
In this episode, I’m talking about why I wanted to re-record two podcast episodes and how I came to a decision as to whether or not to let myself do it. If you find yourself re-doing your work so it’s good enough or constantly making little edits then this episode will help you figure out when re-doing your work is self-sabotage and when it’s not.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
- What happens if we always let ourselves re-do our work
- How I was able to tell whether re-recording podcast episodes was self-sabotage
- What all-or-nothing thinking has to do with re-doing our work
- Why you can’t listen to your brain every time it says your work isn’t good enough
