  1. This is a very important lesson that I learned, as well, over the past two years. Most criticism is so subjective – unless it rings true and I can learn from it, I brush it off.

  2. This lesson seems to be the very “cornerstone” of moving forward in my life! I first learned this lesson in 1986 when I was grieved by a large union staff who took a dim view of their new employee handbook being illustrated in cartoon format by me! ( this had been well recieved at a previous work place.) Does this remind you of your post, A picture is Worth? Well anyway, the meeting was brutal, surrounded by 40+ angry fellow employees. My management rep, quite famous for his expertise, (I worked for Harvard) loved that I never cried, and thanked me for being a great listener!
