Teach girls bravery, not perfection
We're raising our girls to be perfect, and we're raising our boys to be brave, says Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code. Saujani has taken up the charge to socialize young girls to take risks and learn to program — two skills they need to move society forward. To truly innovate, we cannot leave behind half of our population, she says. I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection.

Brave, Not Perfect with Reshma Saujani
Imagine if you lived without the fear of not being good enough. If you didn't care how your life looked on Instagram, or worry about what total strangers thought of you.
Imagine if you could let go of the guilt, and stop beating yourself up for tiny mistakes. What if, in every decision you faced, you took the bolder path?
That’s the mission of our latest guest, Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code and author of Brave, Not Perfect: Fear Less, Fail More, and Live Bolder.
Too many of us feel crushed under the weight of our own expectations. We run ourselves ragged trying to please everyone, all the time. We lose sleep ruminating about whether we may have offended someone, pass up opportunities that take us out of our comfort zones, and avoid rejection at all costs.
There's a reason we act this way, Saujani says. “As girls, we were taught to play it safe. Well-meaning parents and teachers praised us for being quiet and polite, urged us to be careful so we didn't get hurt, and steered us to activities at which we could shine.”
By choosing bravery over perfection, girls can find the power to claim their voice, to leave behind what makes them unhappy, and go for the things they genuinely, passionately want.
In Brave, Not Perfect, Saujani shares powerful insights and practices to help us let go of our need for perfection and make bravery a lifelong habit. By being brave, not perfect, we can all become the authors of our biggest, boldest, and most joyful life.

Reshma Saujani: "Brave, Not Perfect" | Talks at Google
Do you run yourself ragged trying to not just do it all, but do it all flawlessly? Do you lose sleep ruminating over small mistakes or worrying that something you said or did might have offended someone? Have you ever passed up a big opportunity - a relationship, job, or a personal challenge - for fear you wouldn't nail it right away or look foolish trying? For you, is failure simply not an option?
You're not alone.
In a book inspired by her popular TED Talk, Reshma Saujani shows us how to break free from the trap of perfection, and rewire ourselves for bravery. Because -- while chasing perfection may set us on a path that feels safe -- it's bravery that leads us to the one we're authentically meant to follow. Bravery gives us the power to claim our voice, to leave behind what makes us unhappy, and go for what sparks in our souls.

Reshma Saujani at 5x15 on Brave Not Perfect
Reshma Saujani is the daughter of immigrant parents and a Yale Law school graduate. She became the first Indian-American woman to run for Congress, in what was touted as a hotly-contested race, where she was endorsed by the New York Observer and the Daily News and featured on the cover of the New York Times and the Washington Post. She then lost spectacularly, picked herself up and went on to found Girls Who Code, a non-profit organisation which aims to close the gender gap in technology and has so far taught 100,000 girls to code. Reshma’s new book Brave, Not Perfect, looks at the ways that boys and girls are raised and argues women and girls should embrace imperfection and bravery.
