Schedule Feedback into Your Calendar

 

How can you keep important feedback fresh?

When you get a helpful or important piece of feedback, but you’re not going to implement it immediately, there’s a simple way to keep it top of mind for your next performance: put it in your calendar!

Using feedback can be a difficult task simply because you forget to use it in the moment or at the proper time. After all, the feedback you receive on one day might not be used for another several days, weeks or months.

The key to using feedback successfully is to listen to the feedback you receive, take notes, internalize it and then make a deliberate effort to record it in your calendar just before the next corresponding practice session or performance.

This way, you’ve created your own gentle nudge to help you remember to use the feedback when it is most important and during the proper occasion. Using this strategy for implementing feedback will elevate your performance to the next level!
