"I loved Practical Perfection! Once I started reading I couldn’t stop and I read it all in one go. I also sent it to my partner so that we can test out some of the family routines. I didn’t know that I identified with being a ‘striver’ and ‘self‐oriented perfectionist’, but that is exactly what I am. It’s such a relief to know there are other people like me … and that they are living happy and rewarding lives." ~ Meryl Johnston

-----

• If you've ever been told "You're too hard on yourself" ...
• If you're especially prone to overwhelm, burnout and the feeling of being like a hamster on a wheel ...
• If your perfectionist tendencies are holding you back from truly enjoying life ...

Then Practical Perfection was written for you.

Five years ago, Kelly Exeter ticked all of the above boxes. Then she had a breakdown. It was in recovering from that breakdown that she developed a framework for herself. One that stopped her burning out all the time. One that helped her stay on the right side of overwhelm. One that got her off the hamster wheel.

Practical Perfection shares that framework and shows how anyone whose self-imposed high standards are holding them back can live an excellent life. One where:

• You get to achieve what you want to achieve without the constant stress and overwhelm people who set high standards for themselves tend to experience.
• You have time and space to be good to those closest to you.
• You have time and space to be good to the world.
• You have time and space to be good to yourself.

I just love this book.
Kelly is a master of making the mundane engaging, and cutting to the chase.
The last thing an already overwhelmed passion seeker needs is a 400 page thesis on how to make life easier. Let's face it, something like that will sit in the "to be read when I'm not absolutely overwhelmed". (Code for: never).
So instead, Kelly gives us a Venn diagram to hang our hats on, then gives very practical advice on what to do with it.
Voila! Life simplified. Whelm, over.
Thanks Kelly. I'm buying 10 copies to gift to some of my coaching clients.

Practical Perfection came at the ideal time for me. As a perfectionist who knows she has to change her ways to change what's not working, I need all the help I can get - and Kelly's advice is full of deep wisdom that's easy to implement. The book is short too, so it's easy to digest in one or two sittings. And it will stay with you. Just yesterday I remembered the brilliant concept of 'white space' as I was doing errands on the day before a major public holiday - it helped me get through with my sanity (mostly) intact! I can't recommend this book highly enough.

As a recovering perfectionist, I found myself nodding the whole way through Practical Perfection. If you are too hard on yourself, or suffer from overwhelm and burnout from trying to get everything right in your life, you need this book. Direct and to the point, Kelly's practical suggestions and step-by-step strategies will help you transform your life into one that is more balanced and satisfying. And one where you are much kinder to yourself - which you deserve! Well done Kelly on another brilliant book.

Kelly doesn't contribute to overwhelm by making the book ridiculously long or complex.
I particularly liked the section on Routines. It helped me understand how to create them and really why they are beneficial.
Kelly gives very clear examples and cites great references, of each concept she is trying to help the reader understand.
I highly recommend this book.

What a great little book - a quick read with lots of easily applied ideas to help you regain focus, remain passionate, increase your productivity and prioritise what is important to you. I particularly liked the whitespace concept Kelly writes about - we all need more whitespace in our lives. Intrigued - read the book!

Kelly Exeter has always been my favourite blogger and her writing and encouragement has helped save me from myself on many occasion. This book is no exception. The book itself lives up to the title. Ever understanding and ever practical, Kelly's observations, insights and solutions are just perfect.
