-great techniques for real-life implementation
-good balance of real-life examples, anecdotes, research, and humor
-easy read
-can read separate from his other book
-quick application guide that summarizes chapters

-would sometimes feel jadingly self-promoting

-This is a great book for developing habits that disentangle you from a lot of the problematic thinking patterns that prevent us from doing what we want or what we need. If you have trouble with depression, anxiety, procrastination, “laziness”, self-criticism, rumination, low self-esteem, etc., I’d recommend giving this book a try.
-The author does mention his other book “Mini Habits” fairly frequently, and while you can read this one without the other, I wonder how different the two would be/how much they would supplement each other, or if they are too similar to get anything out of reading the other alongside. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0996435409, Paperback)

From an early age, kids are taught to color inside the lines, and any color that strays outside the lines is considered to be a mistake that must be avoided. Perfectionism is a naturally limiting mindset. Imperfectionism, however, frees us to live outside the lines, where possibilities are infinite, mistakes are allowed, and self-judgment is minimal. The old way to approach perfectionism was to inspire people to “let go” of their need for perfection and hope they could do it. The new way is to show people how simple but highly strategic "mini actions” can empower them to gradually and effortlessly “let go" of perfectionism. This book applies the science of behavior modification directly to the roots of perfectionism, resulting in a new and superior method for change. Imperfectionists aren’t so ironic as to have perfect lives: they’re just happier, healthier, and more productive at doing what matters.
