How To Ask For Feedback That Helps You

I teach what I call the 1 percent improvement doctrine, which basically states that you want to improve 1 percent at time, every day instead of trying to go for the ‘big kill’ and improve ‘all at once’. That being said, having a MasterMind Group helps a lot, but that requires a little more commitment and discipline.

The Fastest Way To Get Better Results

The fastest way to get better results is to ask someone who is better than you. My ‘formula’ is to do what I did this week when I played a squash pro…

“What 3 things should I focus on to improve my game so that the next time I take a lesson with you, I can already have improved?”

That narrows it down and synthesises what I call my Next Best Steps. It also makes it easy for him to summarise the 3 easiest things that would make the biggest difference. By the way – if you have more than this, it becomes confusing and self-defeating.

So there you have it – another simple and easy strategy to put into practice, the next time you practice deliberately!
