Bruce Coville Appreciation Post

fireandwonder:

Okay, I lied. I’m actually re-reading Bruce Coville’s Alien Ate My Homework. Mostly because I wanted to find this particular exchange between a human and an alien that in hindsight was my first exposure to preferred pronouns:

"Oh, I wasn’t an only child. I had several…

BRUCE COVILLE HOLDING. IT. DOWN.

Now I understand why so many songs talk about desire as electric.
If I could harness what I’m feeling right now, I could power a city.

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

Wherever perfectionism is driving, shame is riding shotgun. Perfectionism is not about healthy striving, which you see all the time in successful leaders, it’s not about trying to set goals and being the best we can be, perfectionism is basically a cognitive behavioral process that says if I look perfect, work perfect, and do everything perfectly, I can avoid shame, ridicule, and criticism. It’s a defense mechanism. -

Hooooly shit I needed to read this article.

(via rouxfully)

"When I interview leaders, artists, coaches, or athletes who are very successful, they never talk about perfectionism as being a vehicle for success. What they talk about is that perfectionism is a huge trigger, one they have to be aware of all the time, because it gets in the way of getting work done."

Yyyyyyyyep.
