When you're working towards your goal and things don't go your way, EVALUATE, but do not judge. Evaluating means to look objectively at the situation.
Let's say, you participated in your FIRST bazaar for your start up business and at the end of the day, you made ZERO sales. Evaluation is when you say - the booth location is not visible, I don't have a banner in my booth, potential customers wanted to taste samples. When does judgment come in? Judgment is when comparison and emotions come in the picture. I'm such a failure with marketing, my cookies are better than brand X, these customers are so demanding, the location given to me is so bad, my friends are unsupportive, etc.
When we simply evaluate without judging, we are able to easily pick ourselves up from failures and move forward. As Thomas Sterner said "Do-Observe-Correct." #evaluation #keepmovingforward #doyourbest #equanimity #lifecoaching #lifelessons - 19 hours ago
