Don’t listen to what other people say. Follow the beat of your own drum.
Allowing for the input of other people will only bring cacophony to the music you are trying to make.
If you have an original idea, don’t waste your time and effort trying to make people understand.
They won’t. And the help you will probably get comes in the form of negative feedback.
If all those geniuses listened to their peers, we would probably still be living in the middle ages.
