Improve the feedback you receive and process
You can use feedback on your work as a powerful tool to improve your current standards. When you receive and act on constructive, unbiased and varied feedback, you’ll be able to better hone your skills.
Look for feedback that provides unbiased information
For example, if you’re a blog writer, use tracking code to figure out what percentage of people read your post all the way to the end.
Engage in situations where you aren’t certain you’ll succeed
If you want honest, accurate feedback, you’ll need to showcase your work in situations where you can’t predict the outcome. After all, if all the feedback you receive is positive, it’s very hard to improve.
Seek a lot of feedback
Expose yourself to a lot of feedback over short periods of time. This will motivate you to work harder and faster at mastering your skill and perfecting your work.
