In this bonus episode 11, I step into the mentor role to share on this topic of losing sleep or neglecting to get enough sleep and how this is tied into perfectionism. This episode will premier at 7am EST on Thursday 6/30/2022

How can lack of sleep be caused by your quest for perfectionism? Ever heard anyone say “sleeping is overrated” or “I’ll sleep when I die”?

Also in this bonus episode, my goal is to provide an update on what to expect for future episodes.

How can black women leaders understand themselves better and make better choices so that they will live more happily and have more joy in all of their relationships? Getting past perfectionism is one of the keys for this, and one thing that can help you get past perfectionism is getting enough sleep.

Ironically, if you’re sleep deprived, it’s highly likely that you have a hard time listening or focusing, and it’s also likely that your brain health and your emotions may also be out of balance.

Watch or listen to this episode to hear about my journey. I hope that you’ll take what I share seriously and make good choices for yourself so that you are getting enough sleep in the future.

Also, we discussed…

This is for women aged 40 and over… Shed the ‘clothing’ [literal and metaphorical] that no longer fits. You’re not the same as you were in your 20’s and should not have unrealistic expectations of yourself, nor should you let anyone else put those unrealistic expectations on you.

Plant Your Seeds With This Self-Coaching Tip:

Sometimes you can coach yourself simply by journaling on a consistent basis. Research studies have shown that this can help you stay motivated, especially when you look back at previous journal notes. In this way, you can course correct when you see a pattern emerging that does not align with your goals and/or you can update your goals to align with emerging patterns. Journaling and making adjustments based off of your journaling review can also help you to give yourself more grace when the outcome of your work doesn’t end up looking like what you expected… which is a huge part of letting go of toxic perfectionism.

Episode 2 Topic: How to Understand and Let Go of Toxic Perfectionism

On the Plant Your Seeds Show, we share vulnerably about hard topics to support and bless women leaders who are healing and transforming after trauma or crisis has occurred in their families, marriages, careers, and/or businesses.

~ Donna Marie Johnson, @leadlikeaqueen

In the future, I plan to interview some leaders who have been in your shoes and who are sharing vulnerably, too. So, stay tuned for updates later this year.

For now, you’ll be hearing me share on topics relevant to your journey as a leader.

I am glad to be back for season 3. My time away gave me time to deal with some of my own issues so that I can be a better help to you. One of those is perfectionism… I divorced it. I’ll talk about how to begin understanding toxic perfectionism and how to manage it on this episode. (For background, have a look at the blog article I wrote about it at the link above.)

Key Phrases:

  • Contentment v. Complacency
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Gratefulness
  • Staying Present
