if your new here this is a gas obviously but to be more specific does work from some of the best personal development and minimalism blogs other without permission and a minimalist are one of my favorite their superficially eyes and gray writers a leather content and actually partnering with a bunch of other minimalist and simple living authors for a course that will take place for all of twenty seventeen you gotta check it i was gonna be awesome you can learn my old podcast stockholm slash learn but for now we get to the post is hard optimizing your life this probably isn't for you by josh reveals member of the minimalist stockholm backs and i are fifty feed from the bandstand wing for one of our favorite musicians who take the stage a sizeable crowded congregated on the dry grass around us and my backers from all this standing on unforgiving turf beyond the
i form the sun was setting behind clouds that look more like pastel sand dunes and collections of condensed water in the atmosphere humphrey soil in anticipation hoping it in waste my money after witnessing the forgettable ban that opened the show i hope this turns out to be the good concert wait a good concert for whom don't get me wrong the opener wasn't bad they were well rehearsed and well dressed and perform with vigour were too many electric guitars for my taste this lungs were too heavy for my taste and where to draw me for my taste my taste so the crowd whole heartily enjoy the opening band tommy drums and all i have attended least a hundred concerts in my lifetime and most my fondest memories are of discovering gifted opening acts who surprise me with their music even though much of the crowd was fidgetting for the headliner because i wasn't entertained by this particular band give me the writer sorrowfully critique them no if other people too
there said then that means assembly wasn't for me and that's ok see used to be true in a broader sense as well my favorite movies book send songs are not objectively good or bad annie do you mean i get the same value from them as i do and that's ok if you don't enjoy them then they probably aren't for you there for some one else so don't waste your time like go move on but while you walk away you need deprive the rest of the crowd by casting shade on the maker of the thing for whatever the minimalist create our documentary hard teddy stocks are podcast our books this blog as was right and i can look ourselves in the mirror and honestly say quote we believed this exceptional this piece is absolutely the best we could have done given the resources we have on quote then we will give our cells permission to release our creation to the world wars and all millions of i found valley in our body of work but if you don't that's ok isn't for everybody them are you create the more you will be criticised and that too
who is ok because criticism is helpful especially when solicited from people you trust evaluators who help build building taller stronger better this type of critics some is rare that's what makes a precious other this is however is a greater reflection of the critic himself rolling the indignation the tearing down a buildings these are all neon signs as a this isn't for me so next time i get ready to feebly condemn someone's work perhaps i should ask myself is this effectively bad or is this just not for me is the form then i must ask how can a critique be useful is it my feedback is only veiled venting i've done nothing but tribute to the recreational outrage i so despise if it's a ladder than perhaps i best served by keeping my mouth shut in looking for something that is in fact for me an exit someone criticizes you consider this your creation
probably isn't for that critic is for someone else only a spotlight illuminates the stage the main item mazur instruments and i'm back in the moment boy by an increasing roar of the crowd the music starts this truly outstanding raw long along off key to every chorus and begging for an encore when the lights go dark this definitely was for me though act wasn't though and that's ok sometimes we have to wade through the wood of dislike for we arrive at something we love yeah listen to the post title this probably isn't for you by joshua feels milburn of the minimalist our com a nice in short who post from the minimalist and again the minutes will be participating in the year long course on simplicity this open for registration right now the prices does center for early birds it will go up soon this is something you're even remotely interested in it out to learn more other authors
