When this week’s question came in, it gave me a chuckle.

Mostly because it speaks to something we can all feel at times: exhausted from constantly striving to improve ourselves.  

Whether it’s a new diet, journaling practice, or “mental hack” to boost our productivity — these days, it seems like there’s always something new we should be doing to improve our lives.

Which raises a valid question.

You might wonder, “Can’t I just coast for a little bit? Isn’t it OK to live my life without constantly trying to make it better? Is there a downside to all this inspiration?”

If you’ve ever wanted a little breather from self-improvement, I think you’ll really appreciate today’s show. (And yes, I get the irony.)

As someone who’s passionate about lifelong learning and personal growth, I really appreciated the opportunity to answer this question. It gave me a chance to unpack some common misconceptions about my industry, the apparent non-stop barrage of advice giving in the digital age, and…

You might be surprised at my answer about whether it’s a good idea to take a break from self-improvement.


Now, I’d love your take on this. Specifically…

How do you strike the balance between loving personal growth and not constantly feeling like you’re some fixer-upper project?

I’m particularly interested in your answer because I’ll bet you and I share some DNA and a burning passion for lifelong learning. Let me know in the comments below!

Remember to do your best to share as much detail as you can. Thousands of brilliant souls come here each week for connection, insight and inspiration and your story may just be what someone else needs to have a breakthrough.

Important: please share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. may be deleted as they can come across as spammy.

Thank you so very much for reading, watching, sharing your genius. Tuesdays are a real treasure in my life, and that’s all because of you.

P.S. Today I’m doing something exciting and a wee bit scary (for me!). I’m flying on a small jet down to Necker Island to mentor some brilliant entrepreneurs who won the Build A Business competition through Shopify.

Not sure how strong my internet access will be, but make sure you follow me on Instagram, as that’s where I’ll share some real-time pics!

With so much love,

XO
