Know your weaknesses
Critique yourself. What are your weaknesses, and what are you doing to improve them?
I come from a philosophy where I try to be hyperaware of my weaknesses so that when the critique from others come, it is not a surprise. That way, my inner response can be, “I’m working on it!” rather than, “Oh, wow. I’m shocked!”
Being aware of your weaknesses requires a degree of humility. Set aside your ego. We are not perfect, but rather, we are always in a state of becoming better. So, starting today, what is one weakness that you will improve upon? How will you improve upon it?
