Dealing with Criticism Using the Hierarchy of Focus Method

If you are going to put content out into the world — be it a book, blog post, podcast, or video — you’re eventually going to be criticized, and maybe even mocked; it’s just part of being a creative individual.

And if you are going to continue to live a creative life, you’re going to need to learn how to deal with critics, trolls, naysayers, and haters.

I hope you find it helpful!
