Feedback? I Say Bring It On!
I was planning on writing a blog post about blogging today, but I have changed my mind. Why? You ask did I not follow my plan that I made for myself today? Well, I was walking through my home office earlier this afternoon, when I heard my partner receiving some feedback, some really constructive criticism from a team mate of his on a capture page. Then I tried to remember the last time I got some feedback from someone other than my partner. Honestly, I can’t really remember when.
The reason I haven’t gotten any feedback lately is simple. I haven’t asked for it! You know what they say: “Ask and you shall receive”. People won’t just automatically give you their opinions. If they did, they just might come off sounding mean or rude, leaving you wondering what’s up with that person.
Feedback is such an important part of business that I am going to make it a habit to ask for it. Feedback can point us in the right direction. That constructive criticism helps us to see where we can improve in the areas that we lack and show us our strengths so that we can build them up. Getting feedback will help you and your business to grow and prosper.
It helps to get a different perspective and different point of view when it comes to something that you are creating and building for your business. I find that I have more of an analytical brain and have a fascination with numbers. So, it fits that my business partner has more of a creative brain and has an awesome way with words. I greatly value others people’s opinions especially if they can see something in a way that I cannot.
I was grateful that I walked through the office when I did. It was a stark reminder to me that I haven’t been to good at asking for feedback! Now, I am more aware and won’t think twice about receiving thoughts, ideas and opinions from others.
What are your thoughts on receiving feedback?
Do you make it a habit to ask for feedback?
Thank you for reading, and for your opinions!
