Feedback is an amazing thing.  On one hand, if it’s positive, it can be uplifting and encouraging.  On the other hand, if it’s negative, it can be discouraging.  The possibility of negative feedback keeps many people from seeking it in the first place.

If you’re going to improve, you need feedback – both positive and constructive.  Build feedback into your 12 Week YearTM.  Seek feedback through measurement and through input from others.  Don’t worry that some of it may be negative.  Sometimes the negative can be the most helpful and, ultimately, have the greatest positive impact in the end.
