Feeling Stuck? Create THIS List Instead! With Coach (+ Recovering Perfectionist!) Monica Packer

January 11, 2024

“Dare to prove yourself wrong. The Do Something List is tried and true. If you’re going to go into an experiment that has like a sure outcome, this is one. This has been replicated by hundreds of women in my community, and it will change your life.”

I'm KAte!

I believe in cultivating joy, practicing gratitude, and prioritizing your own self care and wellness routines, so that you can love those closest to you the best you possibly can!

Ever felt stuck in the ‘perfection trap’? If so, you’re not alone, friend! In fact, the Harvard Business Review shares that their rates of perfectionism have increased by statistically significant amounts from 1989 to 2016.

Which is why I’m thrilled to have Monica Packer, the woman behind About Progress, joining us today. She’s not your average mom of 5—Monica’s a pro at kicking perfection to the curb and embracing growth instead!

In our chat, we’re spilling the tea on perfectionism and that the sneaky fear of failing that keeps us from even starting. Monica’s journey—from perfection paralysis to a making progress—is truly inspiring and will encourage you into action too!

And my personal favorite thing we chatted about is Monica’s ‘do something list.’ It’s like your daily adventure guide, minus the pressure of hardcore goals. Plus, we’ll talk about savoring the little things while chasing the big dreams—trust me, it’s all about finding joy in the journey.

Stick around for tips, laughs, and a sprinkle of inspiration from Monica . Let’s dive in and break free from perfection together!
