I used to hate having my work critiqued. It made me itchy.
Over the years, I’ve learned to love it. In fact, I’m usually much more proud of my work as a result of others’ critique.
A little backstory: I lost my job in 2012 and it took a year to get back into the workplace. Yet another year later, I was job hunting again. Since the freelance and consulting work found me, I decided it was probably what I should be doing.
But one thing I’ve missed about the workplace is being with people. I’m an ENTP (read: extrovert who likes to start stuff), I love being, working with and learning from others. That includes critique of my work.
Because un-critiqued work is almost never the best possible work.
