Regardless of what you do, in every situation you will get a result. It may not always be the result you want but it is a result. People have a tendency of thinking unresourcefully when evaluating their action, which reduces the opportunity to learn and therefore improve. Because much of how we think is done unconsciously, you must start consciously asking resourceful questions until they become your unconscious habit for evaluating your actions.
Three powerful questions for improving your thinking and evaluation process are:
- What did I do well?
- What did I learn?
- How can I use what I learned to improve?
Write these down and read them after seeing the results of your actions. Take the time to consider each one and take planned action on the third question to insure your continuous improvement.
