I was impressed

I don’t impress too easily, but today I was impressed.

How to handle differences and how to handle criticism are two of my biggest pet peeves. Not many people resolve conflict well or accept criticism maturely.

I’ve always thought that the key to dealing with criticism is to handle it like a football pass rather than a bullet. Usually, there’s something of value that another person is offloading in their criticism and that can be caught and run with. Unfortunately, we usually feel like someone is taking shots at us rather than throwing passes. This results in “return fire” and we’re off to the races…

Well, today I watched as a close friend handled criticism about as well as anyone I’ve ever seen.

He caught the pass and ran with it… he didn’t get defensive… and he remained humble.

I was impressed…
