This Resolution's a Keeper

You know you should get a 360-degree evaluation: asking trusted colleagues for feedback on you. But most people are too scared to get it. Force yourself anyway. It's key to your growing. Besides, better to know the bad news so you can try to improve before it's too late.  And who knows? You may get more praise than you fear. 

Here's a good way to get your feedback: 

1. Use to get anonymous feedback from your board of advisors:  bosses and coworkers you trust.

2. Review their feedback and pick one or two things you want to improve during the next week.

3. Daily, give yourself a letter grade on your progress. Record it on

4. After one to four weeks, ask your Board of Advisors to reevaluate you on Checkster.

5. As desired, repeat steps 1-4. 

Also consider using that process to improve your personal life, perhaps selecting the person(s) you're living with as your board of advisors.

I've decided to practice what I preach. It's a bit scary but I just didn't let myself think about that and now we'll see. I'll keep you posted.
