Is Your Work Any Good?
Who decides the answer to this question?
Many people think the user, the receiver, the customer does. They wait with baited breath to see if they will get boos or applause. They leave the final evaluation to someone else.
The person who really decides this is you.
Are you happy with it? Are you happy with what you’ve put into it?
Your confidence has to grow and you have to believe in you.
The fact of the matter is, we all grow when making our craft better. My work in my 50’s is demonstrably better than my work in my 20’s. I don’t work any harder than I did then, but I have so much more knowledge and maturity that I can inject into every project I take on.
So do you.
Give it everything you got. Put it all out there.
Let the critics do their thing. Remember, strong critics are typically non-achievers. They are too busy being a critic.
Do not get sucked into reading or listening to unsolicited feedback. Do not listen to those whom you did not ask for input.
There is no growth in that.
Do listen to those you think have your best interest at heart. Solicit their thoughts and feedback.
There is growth in that.
