Critics

The one who has never made a film will become a film critic.  The one who has never made a painting will criticize your work.  He who never fought on the borders with soldiers will sit in AC and participate in political debate.

Should you pay attention to them?  Will you take their judgment seriously?  Yes and no.  Honest criticism should always be welcomed.  Ridiculous and prejudiced criticism should be neglected.  When you are exposed to criticism you open yourself to learning.

A customer will criticize your product no matter even if he doesn't know what goes into aerodynamics.  And if you are in the market then everyone is a critic.  But only few should be dealt with care.  And rest is just noise.  Filter it out.

And  you cannot please everyone.  But you can acknowledge them and move on.
