“Perfection is the enemy.” ~ Sheryl Sandberg
How many times have you kept your mouth shut because you didn’t have the perfect words?
How often have you decided not to act because you were afraid you’d make a mistake?
Did you know that fear of being seen as imperfect or making a mistake is one of the number one reasons women make less than men and are often overlooked for promotions?
As a result, women are less likely than men to go after a position they feel they aren’t fully qualified for, and to advocate for their worth and recognition.
And so women remain on the sidelines of important conversations.
In the book “Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming” by Paul Hawken, educating girls and women is recommended as one of the number one ways to reverse the effects of global warming.
This is just one example of how women have the power to change the world. An informed, empowered woman brings everyone up with her -- her family, community and even mother nature.
F*%k perfect ladies.
Perfection keeps you from using your voice.
Perfection keeps you from advocating for yourself.
Perfection keeps you from equal pay, equal opportunity and equal power.
Don’t wait until it’s perfect. If your head and your heart see a way forward, do it.
Imperfect. Messy. Human. That’s how it’s done.
One way that you can begin to make these changes in your professional life is to come to the Superwoman Summit. Now’s the time to get your ticket! It’s just 3 weeks away.
