The Surprising Reason Why You Struggle With Shiny Object Syndrome + Giving Up Too Early

 

 Hang out with us inside our free Facebook group, The Cubicle to CEO Podcast Lounge!

Welcome back to another solo episode! This week's episode is on a really juicy topic that has completely transformed the way that I do business. It is the Dunning Kruger effect. I was first introduced to this concept by a friend & business mentor of mine, and it has radically changed the way that I look at my behavior patterns around business. If you struggle with shiny object syndrome, or feel like you start things but never finish them, this episode is a short discussion on this topic where I break down why this happens, how you can avoid it, and show up for your own life.
