making course corrections :)

 Very few of us like correction.  I hated getting corrected when I was a kid – so I tried to be pretty good, or at least sneaky enough not to get caught ,)

We all receive correction regardless of our age.  We get corrected at work through performance appraisals, at school through our grades, by the police when we are speeding, etc.  The real issue about getting corrected isn’t how we get corrected but rather how we receive correction.  Here are some ways to receive correction:

  • with gratitude or grumpiness
  • reflection or rejection
  • soft and tender or hard and brittle
  • receive or deflect
  • change or get callous

Let me suggest that we can maximize the correction that we receive by how we receive it.  Or, we can wash, lather, rinse and repeat until we make some adjustments 🙂
