Giving thoughtful feedback on a Monday, how do you do it?
Shared by · 450d ago · 6 comments

To some users (including me at first), it may seem daunting to review 10 projects every Monday and give 'thoughtful' feedback.

What I've found really works well for me is reviewing 1-2 projects throughout my day during my breaks just so I can actually give well-thought-out and sometimes helpful feedback.

How do you do it? Burn through all at once? or in batches? I'd love to know.

My strategy is i love to do it on Monday Evening after work, just before I sleep I take my phone and spend 1 - 1 and half hours giving helpful feedbacks. · 449d ago

This was my strategy in the beginning but I realized I didn't have that stamina to go through all at once haha. Glad it works for you though, that's quite impressive actually imo.

That's my strategy this time as well, although I think we actually have until the end of Tue (on my dashboard it says Wed 1am)

I like to take my time with them because I find that it actually helps me think critically about my own project, but I think it's important also to find a balance as well. If you work 40hrs, and you spend 2 hrs voting, that's 5% of your work time which I think is good to be mindful of · 450d ago

Yes, this week is special, I wonder why haha.

I totally agree! There's a fine balance between taking enough time and giving thoughtful feedback and overdoing it by spending a ton of time 'trying' to give good feedback when you don't have any at that particular time. Spot on.

I burn through it all at once. I give every pair around five to seven minutes so it takes a little over an hour. I’m not a expert in any of these subjects yet if you pretend to be a possible customer it’s helpful enough.

Also, change the framing. Going through the projects helps you as a builder.

Every day we see websites that are already built and perfect. It’s helpful to the building mindset to see a bunch of projects in process. It helps you not take things for granted.

I do this very quickly. I focus on what the company does and the ASK. Most do not seem to ASK anything, which in my opinion is a massive lost opportunity. In addition, some even lack a website.

Sadly, I hardly look at the progress vs. planned due to lack of time - plus I easily get bored when I see so many emojis.
