Cutting through the noise of opinions

There are always going to be opinions about our work that irritates/annoys/makes us feel inadequate.

Very few of them matter.

There’s always going to be a lot of noise. That’s just a test of our effectiveness and maturity. The noise grows proportional with the size of our ambitions and actions. We can’t get rid of it.

But… we always get to choose what we pay attention to.

All we need to do is be disciplined enough to consistently ask – does this matter?

The question will show us the way.
