#79: Replace Criticism with Curiosity

Nobody likes a know-it-all.

Unfortunately, I myself can be one sometimes. When someone asks for my opinion on a copy or graphic design at work, I don't have a problem wearing a critic's hat and sharing my point of view.

But there's another interesting way to look at creativity—that is, with curiosity.

Instead of writing off a creative's decision based on my taste and preferences, I can ask the copywriter or designer about their thought process and bounce ideas off of each other to improve the work.
