As a young professional, this is a very common issue I’ve had to deal with. When you’re starting out, you don’t know what to expect. You won’t be in the position to give feedback to your boss until you’re an experienced employee. During this time you are more prone to being distracted. So I created this institute of validation that makes sure your feedback is clear, specific, and based on your experience.
I think we all remember a time where we received feedback we didn’t think was that valuable. At this institute I try to make sure to give feedback that is concrete, but fair and balanced. I try to be very clear about what I consider to be the best practice, and how I would like things to be.
The way I see it, what we want is a system where we can see things as they are in our heads, without feeling like we need to correct them. We want to be able to focus on a problem and not have to jump into the weeds of how we could have done things differently. We want to be able to be more clear about what we think is good and what we would like to change.
The problem is when we’re on autopilot, we can no longer focus on a problem and don’t have to jump into the weeds of how we could have done things differently.
In all honesty, none of us have ever used our minds to focus on the problems, solutions, or options. In fact, we have tried, but it just doesn’t work for us. This is why many of us use visualization to deal with a problem we’re having. We do this by taking the problem, and visualizing it, and imagining how the problem could be solved. This helps us to focus on the problem without having to re-focus our attention on the problem.
We can’t use our minds to create solutions for problems without first trying to solve problems ourselves. Sometimes it takes two to tango, and this is one of those times.
This is a great example of the power of visualization. It is often said that visualization is like an onion. It has layers. The layers are all different. One layer tells us “This is a layer of our problem here.” The next layer tells us “This is a layer of our solution here.” The next layer tells us “This is the top layer, and here is the bottom layer.” But it isn’t just a matter of layers. It isn’t just one thing.
With the use of visual aids, we can make something that is more than a picture. We can give it meaning and add the information that it isnt just a picture but a map that tells us how to get there. For instance, in my college math classes, I had to learn how to identify the different types of tangents. The first step to doing this was to identify the different types of tangents. That was easy.
