“You can’t let praise or criticism get to you. It’s a weakness to get caught up in either one.”

Seeking feedback is important in order to maintain a realistic perspective on our effectiveness and how we are perceived by others.  However, it is unhealthy to obsess over the feedback we receive, whether allowing positive feedback to inflate our ego or negative feedback to destroy our confidence.  Seek out and pay attention to the feedback from people around you – especially peers and your team.  Use the feedback to test the intentions of your actions, and make adjustments accordingly.  But never, never obsess.
