Most people don’t like criticism, so we do everything that we can to avoid it.

We surround ourselves with people who agree with us.

We don’t dare to share our ideas.

We do work that is well below our true capabilities.

We come in and leave quietly, hoping that no-one notices.

We conform, we hide, we camouflage ourselves.

It seems logical.

Why leave ourselves open to criticism if we can avoid it?

There’s just one problem.

That’s not how we change the world.
