Life: Despre critica constructiva (part I)

Dupa anuntarea 1000eu.ro, am vazut cateva comentarii care incercau sa faca o critica constructiva a acestui proiect. Asa mi-a adus aminte de alte critici constructive primite cu alte ocazii. Si nu ar fi trebuit sa am o problema cu ele imi ofereau cat de cat ceva constructiv.

Si asa mi-am adus aminte de un pasaj citit in “Tribes”, cartea lui Seth Godin, pe care vroiam sa il postez pe blog. Si mi-am propus sa il citesc de fiecare data cand primesc o “critica constructiva”. Iata-l!

Fear of failure is actually overrated as an excuse…What people are afraid of isn’t failure. It’s blame. Criticism…

So the challenge, as you contemplate your next opportunity to be boring or remarkable, is to answer these two questions:

Will I lose my job, get hit upside the head with a softball bat, or lose important friendships?” If the only side effect of the criticism is that you will feel bad about the criticism, then you have to compare that bad feeling with the benefits you’ll get from actually doing something worth doing. Being remarkable is exciting, fun, profitable, and great for your career. Feeling bad wears off. And then, once you’ve compared the bad feeling and the benefits, and you’ve sold yourself on taking the remarkable path, answer this one:

2. How can I create something that critics will criticize?
