I’ll be the first to admit how working on the “4 Big Lies” webinar exposed the ways that I have bought in to the 4 Big Lies.
I will only speak for myself–Judy’s experience may be different. I’ll claim that I worked too many extra hours on our presentation. Was it overwork? Overkill? Dedicating my evenings to the project certainly changed my quality of life last week: less exercise, less rest, and poor diet.
Was it worth it? I’m not fishing for a critique of the PowerPoint slides–I do wonder, though, whether the extra value put into the presentation made a difference that was noticeable to the audience: or, whether we’ll get return on that work in the future, as we develop new materials. Hard to say.
I wish the line between perfectionism and excellent-ism was easier to navigate in the moment.
Judy and I are clear that we are not gurus at time management, sitting on the mountaintop in a state of enlightenment. We are on the journey to enlightenment ourselves. We are willing and eager to walk this path with others.
