"People will always find something in your work to argue with. Get used to being humbled, shutting out the noise, second-guessing yourself, and realizing that one of out of six times those cretins are right."
On the weekends, I always step away a little from the usual business and marketing posts or sharing technique content from other artists and manufacturers. I found the quote above recently, and it was just too long to shorten and share on Twitter.
Here's the point - listen to everybody's opinions on your work, your business and here and there on your life. Then, do what your heart tells you to do. After enough opinions and often listening too much to your critics, you'll learn to sort out what you need and what's a waste of time to consider.
It's just like eating vegetables when I was a kid. As long as I at least tried them my mother would let me live! LOL Opinions are the same - listen, appreciate them and then throw them in with your gut instinct and do what you feel is right.
Wishing everybody a terrific weekend!
