I have an idea that I am presenting to people that is truly exceptional. Everyone I have presented to embraces the idea, loves the idea, but each wants it to be in someway somewhat different than it is. This is called feedback, and this is good. To a certain extent, this is feedback that I need to weigh and incorporate into the idea, allowing the idea, the project, to change and evolve through collaboration… even to make conscious changes to aspects of the idea that have already become fixed from my perception; to grow, to improve the idea. To another extent, this is feedback that I need to weigh and then not incorporate because to truly create something exceptional means that it will not align with people’s expectations; it will not be what people wanted it to be; it will not look like or act like what they expect it to. How do I know which feedback should be treated which way? You can’t be an entrepreneur by committee. I must decide.
