I sent a story
(a product)
to my editor today.

She will rip it apart,
point out
the gazillion things
that need fixing,
the product attributes
that don’t work.

I will receive these edits,
read them,
get angry,
sleep on them,
and then complete them.

And I will become a better writer
(product designer).
Because feedback does that.
It makes us better.

Beatrice Chestnut,
founder of
The Chestnut Group,

“I try to be the best at what I do,
and to do what I do
in the most conscious,
most self-aware way possible.

This means being open to feedback,
even when it’s constructive criticism
that’s hard to hear;
continually being in learning mode;
and working on myself
and my own personal growth
all of the time.”

You don’t have to like feedback
but be open to it.
