Constructive Criticism

In truth it’s an Oscar Wilde quote that touches the heart of what we’re all afraid of, but desperately need – constructive criticism.

“A true friend stabs you in the front.” – Oscar Wilde.

Others will see what we can not see objectively no matter how hard we try – mainly because we usually do not see what we’re not looking for in our performance – but a friend will. However tough it is to take criticism, it’s not easy for a friend to give it to you either as they put themselves on the line by doing so.

The more graciously you receive criticism, the more likely people will have the courage to tell you what you need to hear to improve. Contructive criticism is extremely important if you intend getting better quicker.
