Just in case you think my ego gets too out of...


Just in case you think my ego gets too out of control, along comes Olivier Blanchard, who tears me a new one.

He writes:

"To real professionals, he has zero credibility...I haven't heard him say one intelligent thing in at least 8 years."


OK, ego deflated.

Good thing I'm going on vacation today. Of course, that's a very low bar he has set for me. All I have to do is say one intelligent thing in the next year and I have a major win!

When someone hates you, how do you handle it?

Here's how I look at it:

1. You are fair game for content. Pictures of people throwing rocks at me often make for more interesting content then people who are throwing kisses.
2. I often learn something from it, so look for learning opportunities. Often haters teach you something more than those who love you.
3. You can't please everyone. Even the iPhone had many haters.
4. Look at the bright side. At least you didn't crash a plane and kill people today. Apologies to those who did crash a plane and kill people.
