Sue Bock on Perfection


Sue Bock, a coach specializing in breast cancer coaching, will be our guest on RN.FM Radio on Monday, August 20th.

According to her website, Sue describes herself in this way:

“Sue Bock has a diverse background in nursing, technology, corporate, & sales fields.   For the past 20 years. Ms. Bock has been enjoying her nursing career, providing knowledge, compassion, and a sense of humor to her patients.  A co-active life coach, trained at one of the top professional coach training schools in the world, her passion for life is motivating her to share her gift of compassion and courage with others.  Her own experience with breast cancer gives her a unique perspective into the vulnerability of life.

“Ms. Bock’s own curiosity and desire for a bigger life has brought her to a better understanding of the human condition.  She uses her sense of humor to bring a sometimes intense situation into perspective.  Ms. Bock’s articulate, non-judgmental, easy to talk to style, opens up an environment for clients to feel at home.  She is a reliable confidant who is honest but gentle with her responses.  Ms. Bock’s passion for the adventure of traveling, helps her to appreciate the differences and similarities among us.”

Sue has shared with us a link to a recent blog post entitled “Perfection is Overrated“. We encourage you to read the article in order to learn a little bit about Sue and the excellent work that she does in the world. Here’s an excerpt to whet your appetite:

“How many times have you yourself, your parents, or others, put you down because you “weren’t perfect.” The question is, perfect in whose eyes? Who’s standards are we trying to meet? Are those standards even attainable? Yes, there is accountability in all these aspects of striving for perfection. And, yes, I believe accountability is required to keep us on track to reach any goals or desires that we want to achieve. I believe, in striving for perfection we have failures, and this is where we truly learn, experiment, and find new avenues of creativity, direction, and accidental discovery. What brings me to this belief? The fact we do not live in a vacuum and we are just imperfect human beings, after all. Just think of the experiences ahead of us if we are willing to take this less than perfect route through life instead of being paralyzed by the idea of perfection?”

Please help us welcome Sue to the growing RN.FM Radio family, and you can look forward to more posts from her in future. And be sure to listen to her interview on RN.FM Radio on August 20th!
