The Pursuit of Perfection

Posted By on Sep 25, 2012

Q. What do Lexus and Olympic Athletes have in common? A. They both mistakenly pursue perfection! For many this makes no sense. Surely the pursuit of perfection stretches us to be the best we can be in that area. Surely giving up on the notion of perfection in a certain area of life is in some way defeatist and therefore a giving up on that area as a result. Wrong! As you know I love to question the norm and having sat with the notion of perfectionism (which by the way we all have within us), I am seeing it a little differently. In this video I will attempt to give you a different perspective on being perfect and challenge you to ‘let go’ a little of the pressure and scarcity that drives us to chase perfect. Ironically if we can let go a little we will ease more into a place of flow and in turn achieve better results in that area. This video was inspired by my experience at the London Olympics this summer. Please share this video if you like...

Have a look at this video and see where in your life you live unauthentically and how this could be undermining you. Please forward this video if you feel someone you know would...

One question I get a LOT from people is how do I get my partner on the same page? Intellectually is sounds like a logical question and seems to make sense and even sounds like a caring and wise question. It’s not! It screams of control and is not necessarily a healthy goal to want in your relationship. Another way of asking the same question is – How do I change my partner? In this video Philip will touch on the subject and give a different perspective. Please consider sharing this video or leave a comment...

With the US Masters kicking off today in the U.S. Tiger’s biggest challenge is not the rest of the field but rather an inner demon that he has yet to put to bed. On Top of that I wonder WHY the wheels came off in the first place in his personal life? When you are not doing what you love it will haunt you somewhere in your life. Does Tiger Woods hate Golf or Himself? Is there any part of this story that YOU can relate to? PLEASE take a moment to make a comment below or share this...
