Day 5: Persistence

Part 1 – 3 Minute Thought Download

Part 2 – When we have our perfectionism handbrake on, overthinking destroys our momentum and stops us from consistently following through.

Has overthinking made you fall off the wagon with this task or project in the past? If so, what did that look like? And what would you do differently if overthinking wasn’t an option? Write 5 ideas below.

Part 3 – Identify one small task you can do TODAY to help you achieve your 5-day goal and get it done without overthinking. Write down exactly what you’ll do, when you’ll do it and how long you’ll give yourself to get it done. If you need to give yourself a little pep talk, do that here too.

If you’d like to learn more about how to stop overthinking, I highly recommend subscribing to my top-rated podcast The Perfectionism Project.

It’s full of perfectionism advice for entrepreneurs to help you get out of your own way and get shit done without burning out.

How to stop feeling overwhelmed, beat procrastination, avoid burnout, escape the all-or-nothing mindset and overcome the fear of judgement – it’s all covered on The Perfectionism Project.

And listening is completely free!

You can find The Perfectionism Project anywhere you listen to podcasts and there are hundreds of episodes already waiting for you there.

Why not do that right now?

And in case this makes it easier, here are the direct links you can use to find it on some of the most popular podcasting apps.

As a side note, the perfectionist thing to do is to go back to Episode 1 and start there but I don’t actually recommend doing that…

Listen to a recent episode that jumps out at you – all of my best and most practical advice is in the most recent episodes.
