Raise Your Hand if You’re a Hard-On-Yourself Perfectionist Overachiever…

For me, this was one of the most moving moments in TED2009. Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the bestseller Eat Pray Love muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius.

If your hand is up, you can relate…

    Love your blog and thanks for reminding me to “do my job!” Hadn’t watched the Gilbert talk since I returned from TED2009. THis was brilliant and I just sent it to 35 people I work with to remind them all what’s possible. Great meeting you virtually and we must stay connected! Kyra
