Many people prioritise feedback over advice. But Harvard researchers found that feedback often has no impact on our performance. They argue that feedback often leads to vague input.
Feedback is often associated with evaluating past performance and is not focused on how you can improve.
Seeking advice over feedback opens up an opportunity for suggestions to improve or even advice on how to find solutions to your weakness.
It takes a willingness to acknowledge a problem you have. Good advice can be your greatest learning experience, especially when coming from someone who has already succeeded in that area.
