How do you handle criticism at work?
I love getting feedback, and I try to use it as data points to guide me towards things that I can improve.
I am generally able to process things in the moment. Today though, I had to remind myself that I can choose my reaction and I don’t have to let criticism bother me.
Not every piece of negative feedback needs to be acted on immediately. Not every piece of criticism is actually about you.
But your reaction is about you.
Did the criticism touch a nerve?
Find out what belief about yourself exists.
Look at it, love it, and maybe, eventually, let it go.
