Another way to stay committed to continuous improvement: ask for feedback. Ask my employees. Ask my band mates and housemates and friends. I can even ask my kids. (You know I want to be the best Dad I can be, right?)
– What should I do more of?
– What should I stop doing?
– What should I start doing?
Then LISTEN to them. People aren’t accustomed to being asked this question, but if I’m not pushy and have my listening ears on, they will tell me.
A different take on the same thread. Every Sunday night, ask your spouse or partner: What did I do great this week? What did I do that I should never do again?
