Video: Brené Brown on Why Your Critics Aren't the Ones Who Count / by Evan Troxel

Brené Brown talks at the 99u Conference about showing up and doing the work. She also has some strong words about whom we should listen to when it comes to feedback on our projects. 

I absolutely love how this talk applies to architecture and designers in particular who have the obligation of being vulnerable. It also reminds me that the process of design is a struggle, and it is not "the fun part" of architecture, although it is often categorized as such. Don't get me wrong... I love the challenge and wouldn't want to do anything else.

A constant struggle, a ceaseless battle to bring success from inhospitable surroundings, is the price of all great achievements.
— Orison Swett Marden

I need to find a way to get this video to automatically replay every time I'm having self-doubt or need a kick in the ass to get moving on my projects again. So about every 2 weeks then.
