Some Guidelines for Criticizing and Complementing

Well Put

Humility is the recognition that we don’t know, even when we think we know. 

~ Tony Schwartz, in his article There’s No Such Thing as Constructive Criticism 

Worth a read for a reminder of how we are all in this experience of inquiry together.

Hat tip to @joelga  for the find. Ding! Ding!

    Well, if I were to take that blog seriously, I’d definitely feel defensive being told how I should think and interact by someone who is obviously writing from a position/perspective of power. I might even feel a little offended with some of the things written there. While I’m sure his perspective has its place, I don’t think it’s the most profound or useful one on this subject. That’s my “feedback” for the day, ha.

    I would word it a little more gently:
    Humility is the recognition that you have been wrong a lot.
