I can’t be the only one who feels pressure to be perfect. At least not the only one in my generation: the millennials. We are told for our whole lives that we can do whatever we want to. We are constantly praised for doing anything from getting a good grade to throwing a Frisbee correctly. We are molded to believe we can do no wrong, but that’s not the case. When we do in fact do something less-than-perfect, the pressure of the impending blame or failure is almost crippling at times.
I’ve heard so much about feedback in my life. It’s a gift, always say thank you, continually ask for it…But let’s be honest, giving good feedback is kind of a pain and it’s hard to be good at giving it, especially in a “form” setting. I’m talking about conferences, and coming out of Agile2016 I’m assuming many of you know what I’m talking about.
