Every wondered how to become better person or make your product better with a simple mechanism. It takes courage and open mind to implement it. A simple feedback for you to grow.
The amount of work you do should correspond to some praises. People should be happy after you deliver. If there are praises coming in then it is an indication that you are moving in the right direction.
Don’t wait for it though. When you do something remarkable, ask proactively for feedback. People reach out for complaints more often than for praises.
Avoid friends, family or someone who knows you to comment on your product, work or nature. They tend to praise to make you happy. People who don’t know you give honest feedback. These praises are validated and you can be happy that your work is good enough to make change.
Some people hate everyone and those are called haters. You should ignore them. From the complaints you receive, sort them out to listen to genuine ones. No matter how remarkable your product is, there is always a chance to improve it.
Your customers will guide you on what they like, what other features they want or how they are not benefiting much.
Listen to them and then work on your product to make it better.
Use feedback mechanism to improve your life. Ask how you can be a better mother, father, spouse or friend. That way you can improve yourself and then be a better person.
If seeking feedback for product you made, work you do then ask for feedback from people you don’t know or have no bias for you.
On the alternate note, subtly give feedback to help others too.
