We all understand the importance of considering what others think of our creations.  That doesn’t make it easier to do, but we generally know it makes it better.  Objective people can offer value-added input for improvements.  Only you will know how to connect it all back together, but you will only find what might be wrong after seeking the objective feedback.

Author Neil Gaiman offers this insightful guidance on feedback:  “Remember: When people tell you something’s wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right.  When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.”  You have to personally create the connection of your originating concept with the feedback for improvement.

Be interested and seek out trusted advisors to pass your work through.  It will be better and they will have authentically contributed at the innovation level of development.  Seeking feedback requires the humility to value the purpose of the work over your own ego.
