Perfectionism and Authenticity – Coffee Break 8

We all have the inner battle of perfectionism, it’s a creator’s struggle and a human struggle. Yet, we live in a world craving the imperfections of a creator’s journey.

In line with not worrying so much about perfection, this Coffee Break inbetweenisode is a short 9 minute audio recording we did in the car while driving.

We were listening to a podcast and as often happens, the podcast fueled ideas and inspiration and we decided to record the convo to share. You can find the podcast we were listening to in the Resource Links below.

We have a lot of these kinds of breaks during the week stimulated from podcasts we listen to, articles we read (or scan;)), the content we see, people that inspire us or just thoughts that bubble up come up.

This is who we are, and we hope you are inspired and encouraged to share your journey with the world.

Things we discuss:

  • Being okay with imperfection
  • Shipping before you’re ready
  • Bringing your art into the world, even before you’re ready
  • Authenticity over plasticity
