We place a lot of pressure on ourselves to perform perfectly, know all the answers, and maintain a polished reputation. That’s pretty stressful considering perfection is humanly impossible.

What if, instead of aiming for perfection, we aimed for connection? And what if, instead of ensuring we look good and feel valued, we focused on making others look good and feel valued?

In this week’s Two-Minute Tip, I share a personal story of a time when I attempted these exact mindset shifts in the face of high client expectations that I wasn’t sure I could meet. I’m happy to report that they actually work…and, in this scenario, resulted in a satisfied client.

P.S. Shout out to my wise friend and colleague, Nancy Buffington, who taught me this powerful mantra: aim for connection, not perfection.
