People will agree or disagree with you. People will agree or disagree with how you do things. That’s how it should be – none of us have all the answers.
The trick is in deciding who you give credence to, and who you let pass by because they offer nothing of value except repetition.
But the “trick” is actually pretty easy to work out.
In your personal life, you give a damn about your loved ones – friends, family, partners.
In your professional life, you give a damn about your business partners, your colleagues, your clients and your customers.
If you blog, you give a damn about your community.
If you’re on social networks, you give a damn about people you connect with.
And all the above includes your critics too. Your valid critics – you give a damn about them too, because they help you grow.
Everyone else? Meh. There are better things to spend your time on.
