Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. Try dedicating specific amount and set of time for receiving constructive feedback. Do it on the same time at the beginning so you would develop the habit faster.
✓ Trigger your mind. Put a sticky note with a large word FEEDBACK on it so you would never miss it.
✓ Let the app help. Set a reminder before your scheduled feedback time so this app could ring when it’s time.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve done a full month of feedback at least once a day, reward yourself.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Constructive is key. When you ask for feedback, you’re not asking for an opinion, but for constructive criticism of what has been done well and what could be improved. You must make this clear whenever you’re asking for it so the giver wouldn’t be at a loss either.
✓ Don’t take it too hard. Remember that feedback is there for you to improve on. Don’t take it as personal attack on you, but learn from it. If emotions run high, let them pass first and then take it on logically.
✓ Ask different people. The more people will give you feedback from their point of view, the better idea you will have of your current state and improvement.
