  • 7 perfectionist “traps” that stop you from realising your potential
  • The surprising physiological reason why perfectionism is stealing your joy
  • The secret technique used by elite military that will help you deal with stage fright and imposter syndrome
  • Plus, 5 simple tools that will break the cycle of perfectionism in just a few minutes a day, leaving you free to express yourself as a perfectly imperfect work in progress.

Praise for Stop "Falling Short"

“I’ve let my perfectionism freeze me, on and off, for years. Decades. I’ve read a lot of books about it, and learned many useful things. But Johanna’s book — this book — gave me a fresh perspective and shifted the idea of perfectionism from an abstract concept that was interesting but untouchable, to something physical, in my body, that I could change. In just a few short chapters, Johanna helped me change my daily experience from paralysis to thoughtful action and I’m so grateful.”
