Yes, it’s okay to deliver your work.
Yes, you are capable of making a difference.
Yes, it’s important.
Yes, you can ignore the critics.
Yes, your bravery is worth it.
Yes, we believe in you.
Yes, you can do even better.
Yes is an opportunity and yes is an obligation. The closer we get to people who are confronting the resistance on their way to making amazing work, the more they let us in, the greater our obligation is to focus on the yes.
There will always be an excess of people eager to criticise, nitpick or recommend caution. Your job, at least right now, is to reinforce the power of the yes.
