Why It's Better to Be a C Student Sometimes: WellStart Podcast 003

Many of us like to aim for perfection when we can. We always tried to get A's in school. To get stellar annual reviews. To never let a typo or misspelling get past us.

And we bring that attitude into our attempts to change our lifestyles and diets. Which is cool.

And usually counterproductive. Because we don't try to eat better and live cleaner in a vacuum. We've got the rest of our demanding, messy lives to deal with.

Jobs. Relationships. Finances. Responsibilities. 

And trying to get an A+ in food might mean doing sub-optimally in another area or two.

In this conversation, Howard and Glenn discuss the siren song of perfectionism, and why it usually comes back to bite us as we attempt to make progresss.

And yes, I left that typo in the last paragraph on purpose. Just to see if I could do it :)
