Business Bytes #34

Dec 21, 2020

Australia's leading small business experts discuss how to survive and thrive beyond the coronavirus.

This week's panel includes:

Kate Witteveen Principal Consultant at Astute Consulting Services and first-time author of - Why Being Good Can be Bad for You.

In today's show, we talk about Kate's new book. Are you so focused on being “good” that you forget to be kind to yourself? Do you make decisions based on what you think others expect, rather than what you really want? Are you striving to meet expectations that are unrealistic, and that you wouldn’t expect anyone else to achieve?

Is there a nasty voice inside your head that is constantly pointing out where you are going wrong? Do you feel like you are stressed out, burnt out or overwhelmed with all the things you are trying to do, and feeling like you aren’t doing any of them properly?

If so, welcome to the tyranny of the good, where perfectionists, high achievers and people pleasers find themselves stuck in situations that look right but feel wrong.

Kate believes many highly capable and accomplished people feel trapped and limited because they make decisions based on what they think is “good”, rather than what is best for them.

When you are trying to be all things to all people, the first person to be forgotten is you.

This means that, despite your best intentions, you feel like you are falling short. It is hard to achieve perfection when you are running on empty. Trust me. I’ve tried and failed!
