Sometimes, I think that we learned everything we need to know about more effective marketing from growing up.
I know that I learned a ton about relationship building from being a part of competitive team sports.
Today’s lesson comes from Jack Stein, who plays both soccer and ultimate frisbee.
After ever game, either his coach, or I ask the same two questions:
- What did you do well?
- What could you improve upon?
This really can be as simple as it sounds.
Some of my best mentors constantly reflect by creating surveys, and inviting constructive feedback because it causes us to use our critical thinking skills.
And, once we become critical thinkers we can start to learn where we should be putting more energy, and where we are merely spinning our wheels.
Take two minutes, either daily or weekly, and ask the questions above. Just like Jack, take it one step further and set a micro goal for how you can improve.
For Jack, it’s 200 frisbee passes. For you, it may be consistently showing up on your social media, or blog rather than stop/starting. Try it for a week and let me know what you think by posting on the blog.
As always, I’d love to hear from you.
