What I’ve learned while painting landscapes, is that not everyone can see what it is that is being created and that it appears to be a human instinct to first criticize and or ridicule the creator for what it is that isn’t understood. Education doesn’t seem to remove this from the person. In business, this mindset can be quite toxic for innovators and problem solvers who try to find solutions for the business, while having to tip-toe around those who they know are going to want to knock the idea before it is built. This is draining on time and resources, while in some situations those who knock are worth their weight in gold if the questioning can be converted into a better-built solution.
