As creators, we often face criticism about our creations. Other times we find ourselves in dispute. These two issues can lead to great discouragement.

In this video I escape to the mountains to reflect on these issues and offer 4 steps we can take to overcome this discouragement. It is my hope that this video inspires us to become better people and better creators in spite of – and as a result of – criticism and dispute.

What tools have proven effective for you in dealing with criticism and dispute?  Let me know in the comments!
