Sometimes I start a project, believing in it, as a good idea that deserve to be developed, worth to invest time and energy.
When I show it to someone that I consider able to add value, with useful critics, often this is not positive, may have something that influence my input, point of view and fundaments. But a critic can be useful, right, oderwise unuseful or negative for a project. You can destroy your work giving credit to wrong critic from the wrong people and kill a “good” idea, or you can improve it, adding something that makes it a “very good” idea.
Are you able to reach critics and avoid to start wrong projects or pitfalls developing an new idea?
