Key Insights

  • “So that’s part of my planning process to say, ‘Okay where do I want to go? What are the things I need to do between now and then to get there, whether it’s five years from now, 10 years from now? What do I need to do and when am I gonna get that done?” – Pam
  • “If [perfectionism] comes up for me, that’s where the dreams die because I get so hooked on something not being right, instead of being able to be like, ‘This is good. Just go.’ So I think for me that’s, that is where that comes from, is perfection.” – Teri
  • “I think that we have to go through the grieving process, and grieve it, and be sad about it, and then find a new dream. We either get stuck grieving it, get stuck in regret, or we say, ‘Okay, what am I gonna do instead?’ And we get excited about something new.” – Pam
