Whenever we’re working on something new, we’d love to have positive feedback.
“O, you’re doing such great work.”
“We love your product.”
“The app is seamless.”
As humbling that feedback seems, it doesn’t help us grow.
What really helps us grow is listening to people who do not have positive feedback about our work.
People who chose not to engage.
They are the ones who tell us what we could be working on next, what should we be fixing, what could be the next version of our work.
While it is not necessary for us to accept everything they say it is important for us is to be aware of what they have to say.
Acceptance is a choice.
Awareness is a discipline.
