Welcome to Canada...Make Us Better
John Furlong has met the call to make this country a better place.
The question..."How can you and I do the same?" The answer..."One person at a time."
Welcome to my friendship...Make me better
I answered this question by starting up Maveriks. As I look back on my life when I am 80 years old...sitting on the porch thinking about my life...I want to make sure I have made a difference. I want to look at lives lived...and know I had a part in them.
It is said that "feedback is the lifeblood of an organization" and I would say that it is for individuals as well. Just like a coach for sports team...the coach observes and makes suggestions for you to optimize your performance. This feedback is not easily seen or observed by the individual. But is he or she not grateful for someone who "told them the truth" about their performance?
When you see something in someone...take the time to "make them better". If you don't...they may never know...and how sad is that.
Good Feedback...we never tire of hearing it....so make sure you offer some.
Negative Feedback...a quiet word of correction, spoken with kindness is something we all need...but do it only with the attitude that you want the person to be better in the end. It will bear great fruit...and make our world better...one person at a time.
