How do you become a leader if you are fighting perfectionism?

Grazer produced them all.

Dyslexia forces him into a situation where he specializes in other skills that most people cannot even learn. He made his predicament a desirable difficulty and found his hidden superpowers.

My challenge for you

What I am finding here is that we have to look at our difficulties as desirable difficulties. What difficulties do you encounter and what does it force you to learn?

Here’s my challenge for you:

You constantly think and act.

I need to get a new job …

I really want to start that podcast …

If I were to speak at the meeting and contribute ideas …

But you’re stuck with a perceived difficulty –

I’m not good enough …

I have no experience speaking in public …

My ideas have to be perfect before I can share them …

Don’t look at it as a problem, look at it as one Desirable difficulty. Force yourself to see what you know by analyzing what you don’t know and discovering your hidden superpowers.
