It's All Information


No one likes to be told they’re bad at something, and even worse is being told you’re bad at something that you thought you were good at. Let’s all raise our hands collectively for a moment and acknowledge that we’ve been there.

Now for a moment, let’s take the emotional response (not liking it) to this feedback (you’re bad at something) out of the equation, and what you have is information -- valuable, meaningful information at that.

We are not computers emotionlessly processing zeros and ones, and to expect ourselves to behave as such is unreasonable. Humans have and will continue to have emotional responses to information. That is natural and real. That being said, we don’t need to let those responses steer the ship. You can take back the helm.

It’s all information, and what you do with it will determine your results. And it turns out, your ability to take in and synthesize that information without tainting it depends on your ability to see the feedback for what it is (information) and not for how you instinctually respond to it.

Don’t let the tail wag the dog.

You’ve received feedback.

You feel a certain way.

That’s okay.

Breathe -- it’s all information. Now what are you going to do with it?
