Prepare to innovate. Then get ready for everything that follows. When you come up with the next brilliant concept or groundbreaking strategy, also be prepared that innovators will be met by the doubtful naysaying of the rigid minds. Every new breakthrough spawns a culture of criticism. Your new approach, particularly once it is heralded by many, will create the opportunity for others to criticize and complain. So, expect confrontation. Prepare for criticism. Be advised that the armchair quarterbacks are ready to tell you where you went wrong. But don’t let your breakthrough turn into a breakdown because the critics find flaws. Seize the opportunity!
