The feedback you’ve been waiting for “You did a great job, I couldn’t be happier.”
Of course we love to hear this sort of thing.
But this isn’t feedback, it’s applause.
If you want to improve then it’s important to actively seek real feedback on how you can improve.
I’m like anyone, and often this sort of real feedback can sting, especially when we’ve done our best, but it’s important to remember that honest feedback given openly is a sign of caring from someone who believes in you and wants you to be even better.
Empty criticism and being mean does no good and we don’t need any of that.
But insightful feedback is priceless.
