Stumbled on this video in the link below with Brené Brown explaining her approach to sharing ideas and critique to a room of designers.
Her comments about the people and critique we should choose to pay attention to, really resonated with me. To use her language, unless you are doing the work, in the arena with me, I am not interested in your critique.
Tom, I really like the quote from Brené Brown. It left me wondering about what happens when there is nobody else doing what you are doing and who becomes your critical friend in that scenario?
