A wonderful talk by Brené Brown. As creatives, designers, and architects we conjure up our ideas and put them out for display for critics everyday. This notion alone is frightening and makes you feel vulnerable to their opinions.
We need to shift this mindset, step away from this fear and take this opportunity as a chance to hear what people say in a positive light. What critics say may not always be positive, but listening to their opinions and respecting that they have an opinion on your work just as you should respect theirs.
It takes a lot of willingness to put yourself and your work out there, the only way we will ever make great work is by taking great risks.
“It’s not the critic who counts. It’s not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled. Credit belongs to the man who really was in the arena, his face marred by dust, sweat, and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs to come short and short again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. It is the man who actually strives to do the deeds, who knows the great enthusiasm and knows the great devotion, who spends himself on a worthy cause, who at best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement. And, who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and cruel souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
