Mirror on the wall

The mirror has been a fascinating tool to man for millennia. Very early, we discovered the power of the mirror and its Ability to give honest feedback devoid of flattery.

The reality is one cannot make meaningful improvements without accurate feedback. Even the wicked witch in the story of Snow White could not manipulate the mirror to show her what she wanted.

Feedback is essential and we must become good at gathering clean and honest feedback. You wouldn’t get much from a smudged mirror, so don’t waste time getting feedback from people that will tell you what you want to hear.

Like the magic mirror, feedback will point you to the fairest in the land. Rather than seeking to destroy them, make it an aim to emulate their winning qualities. As you keep improving, that mirror on the wall will soon tell you that you are the fairest of them all.
