What Dr. Doll can say in an interview on
Secrets for Top Performers

    • Avoid comparative anxiety: if you compare, you will despair.
    • Watch out for phantom expectations about what is “good enough.”

Ex: Good moms make homemade meals for their kids. 

Ex: Successful people are supposed to be promoted every two years. 

Ex: My inbox should be at zero.

Ex: I should be able to focus more.

    • According to who? According to what? There is no universal “good enough” scale. For perfectionists, the goal post just keeps moving. You won’t arrive.
    • Re-frame your “shoulds.” Shoulds are heavy with judgment and self-persecution. Reframe I should work out today vs. It would feel great if I went to the gym.
