Feedback grows “us.”
Hearing no, or that is wrong, or it isn’t enough hurts.
So, for us to take it, we’ve got to keep it together and expect the hurt.
When we know it, we can manage our ego.
One of the ways I love to ask myself is
“am I finished yet?” or
“is this the best I want to be?”
If I am in the same place I am today at the end of the year, I’ve failed. Feedback moves the needle forward.
