Asking For It

"Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, being nothing."


Having acted, expect to be criticized.

Expect it but don't fear it and should you see you're not, ask yourself if you are doing enough.

Are you?


  1. Part of living up to the expectations of others is doing things as they would, even when they themselves don't know what they would do.

  2. If you take a close look at yourself, you will probably find you unknowingly often disagree with the way others do things, with little or no ability to back up what you think. You just "know" the other person is wrong and you are right.

    When that happens, if you would just stop and accept that they may be right and you may be wrong, you would be amazed what you will learn.
