Ask yourself: What’s the absolute worst feedback I could receive on my work? (Remember, keep this work focused rather than self-centered. Meaning- make the answer about your work, not about yourself.) For example: My argument is really weak and you can tell I haven’t read all that I need to read. NOT: My argument is really weak and that’s because I’m stupid. When you come up with the worst work focused feedback you can receive, take steps to actively address the issues raised. This will, in the end, will increase the relevancy and polish of your final product.
