Episode 120. "Perfection is not required.” ~Kelly Covert
If your inbox is anything like mine (I feel for you), there’s no end to the number of resolution-writing guides you’ve received; everything one needs to generate! improve! accomplish! To say nothing of the bad habits you’re sure to (finally) crush.
As aggressive well-meaning as they are, those articles promising more and better ultimately leave me feeling less than.
It’s beyond time for resolution evolution! Inner-voice coach, author, musician, and podcaster Kelly Covert agrees.
After years of failing to live up to grand resolutions, Kelly swapped quantitative perfectionism - those mostly material goals our culture loves to measure - for kinder habits.
Kelly distilled these techniques into a quarterly journal called The Enoughness Planner. I love this format! Unlike traditional goal-setting, this guide prompts participants to discern the difference between conditioned expectations and deeply-rooted intentions. Once identified, you create a personalized routine to support what Kelly calls everyday worthiness.
After that, it’s just a matter of building upon activities that make you feel good rather than ticking tasks off a homogenized list of accomplishments.
Kinder habits and everyday worthiness. Better goals for the New Year.
