You are responsible for your own development

This is a pretty simple but fundamental one: if you want to grow and get better, you’ll have to fix that yourself. At Blendle, we recently introduced our new Blendle Feedback Model. Sounds fancy, but it’s just a system of giving each other feedback with a little structure. At the introduction, Roland (our HR guy), had everyone repeat the words “I am responsible for getting better”. So good and so true. I’m in full control of how I spend my time. No one else but me is to blame when I have the feeling I’m not moving forward.

Today’s the best day to get started.
