"I think that's where we get it wrong, is that we think any bit of information is meaning that we are less than as a person or that we are unworthy or unfit or incapable. When really, feedback is just information, and you have the power to decide what you do with it."

The power is yours

Remember that you don't have to use every bit of feedback that comes to you.

So if you get some feedback that you don't think is relevant? You don't have to take it in.

Remember the acronym SIFT

Consider the source, impact, frequency, and trends of the feedback so that you can make a decision about how you want to incorporate it (or ignore it.)

Ask for time and take notes to review later

Ask for time if you need it so you can process the feedback you're getting. 

And take notes, or ask the other person for notes so that you can revisit the feedback later on.

Practice active listening

Check in as the feedback is coming by repeating back and affirming what you've heard.

Active listening gives you a break to process so that you can hear the truth that might be in the feedback without getting so defensive.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug
