How often do you seek feedback? Is there ever enough?
Today a good mate called me for some feedback on a tricky work situation. I was a long way removed (different business, different industry, different state!), but I was hopefully able to help out by providing a different perspective.
When the phone call ended, I sat in the car smiling. I was impressed by this person’s commitment to constantly improving his performance. The situation he’d been dealing with had eased and he could’ve patted himself on the back and moved on. Instead, he relentlessly reviewed his performance and sought input from people he trusted.
This thought, reflection and effort to seek feedback is the sign of a true champion.
Feedback. Learn to love it.
