Caring enough to be criticized

loveSeth Godin said, “If you care enough about the work to be criticized, you’ve learned enough today.”

I’m applying Seth’s comments out of context and beyond his intent so don’t blame him for what follows.

Refusing to change what needs changing isn’t about the presence of fear it’s about “bad love.”

Bad love puts comfort before innovation.

Bad love puts ease before service.

Bad love puts calm before progress.

Good love faces criticism, discomfort and resistance in pursuit of the higher good.

Effective leaders overcome their fears with love.

Do you love something enough to be criticized?
