Better now, or perfect later

The word 'feedback' written on a blackboard

 

“The goal is not to be perfect by the end. The goal is to be better today” Simon Sinek

That makes sense to me, because we can do something different today.

Does it make sense to you?

Ask yourself “How can I do something today better than I did it yesterday?”

To answer this seemingly simple question, you need to be aware of what you want from what you do, and aware of the gap between what you want and what you are getting.

That awareness comes from reflecting on our experiences, evaluating our results and getting feedback from our environment, from others, from our own inner coach.

Here are some tips on how to get the most from feedback from other people.

My best wishes, Paul
