“The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.” – Norman Vincent Peale
Impartial analysis is key to exposing both what requires repair and what can be exploited to our benefit. Part of developing an honest appraisal of what we stand to accomplish is being open to external critique. Many times, people can see potential where we are blind to it, both for failure and success. Having another set of eyes can expand your vision or bring a more granular focus to what you need to consider. Only hindsight is 20/20. Accepting a credible observation is the best way to transform insight into foresight.
A different lens can bring a clearer picture.
