Think of, and look at, your work as though it were done by your enemy. If you look at it to admire it you are lost.
He who undervalues himself is justly undervalued by others.
“One should never criticize his own work except in a fresh and hopeful mood. The self-criticism of a tired mind is suicide.”
Charles Horton Cooley quotes
“The most vigilant self-criticism of course is necessary, but the time comes when the artist must tell himself he is good or he will go under”
Gerald Moor quotes
If you are trying to stop being self-critical about your performance, work, or behavior, take an objective view of things.
