Who Lets You Know

Who lets you know when you're ready to pass Go?


I mean, who do you share your work with for critique, advice, approval, challenge and change before sharing it with your tribe and beyond?


This person / people are trustworthy. Maybe they're a small group of fans you invite in for a look behind the scenes and an honest opinion. Maybe a writing group. Maybe this is someone who knows your goals, understands your process and has your best journey in mind.


Whoever they are, you trust them to let you know when your new song, book, script, design or series has truly worked it's way through your creative process, what it needs for clarity and cohesion, is honest about the best work you can do, and is ready to pass Go into the real world.


Q. So, who lets you know when your work is ready?


Q. How are you setting healthy expectations for their critiques and comments?


Q. Are you mature enough to respond with thick skin, open hands and a soft heart?
