Want to improve?

Do you want to improve in a certain area? Well, Peter Bregman, writing for HBR, says that if you want to get better, you have to ask yourself these two questions.

Question One: "Do you want to do better?”

Question Two: "Are you willing to feel the discomfort of putting in more effort and trying new things that will feel weird and different and won’t work right away?”

Bergman writes, "I believe — and my experience coaching hundreds of leaders in hundreds of different circumstances proves — that anyone can get better at anything. But in order to get better — and in order to be coached productively — you need to honestly answer “yes” to both those questions."


  • What do you want to improve?
  • If you keep doing what you are doing, nothing will change. What discomfort might you feel while trying to improve?
