Learn to take criticism

by Aaron

It’s hard taking criticism for something you do for a living. Learn to use it to your advantage.

This is especially true when the critic is someone not in your field. Explaining to an artist why you dislike their flier design for your event can be a daunting task. Many artists, chefs, and engineers consider their creations extensions of themselves. Criticisms about their creations become criticisms about them.

And that’s the problem. As a creator, remember that they’re usually not criticizing you. They expected something different and there’s nothing wrong with that.

So don’t take criticism personally. Use it constructively… they may not always be right, but you’re not either :-p
