When doing anything, it seems important to get critical feedback from others.
Whatever work one does occurs not in a vacuum, but in the context of a small section of society.
One might have an audience of one or twenty million, but getting good, critical feedback always helps to improve oneself.
Oftentimes, it is a kind of reality check or sanity check which gives new perspective on one’s work.
Especially, when starting a business, for instance, it may be a good idea to get plenty of feedback at the outset before venturing into the marketplace to see if there could actually be a section of the market which is interested.
