On ‘Life Quakes,’ hosts Jessica Reyes and Patricia Wu hears from a viewer who is struggling with perfectionism that’s costing her both at work and in her personal life. She spends so long trying to get things perfect that she misses deadlines or doesn’t even finish projects at all. Guest counselor Jahmaal Marshall offers practical strategies for ditching the need for perfection and getting more done.

90-Minute Sprints

Set aside 90 minutes for focused work, take a break, and then celebrate your progress. This helps create momentum and build confidence.

The Root Cause Matters

Working with a therapist, counselor, or coach can help you understand where your perfectionism stems from and heal at a deeper level.

Progress, Not Perfection

The perfect finished product doesn’t exist. Embrace the mindset of “done is better than perfect” when working on any task.
