I have read some of your books. How do you respond when people call you a narcissist?
Oh, Bob. I'm too busy thinking about myself to notice if people call me a narcissist.
The truth is: Nobody loves to be criticized. But that's the price you pay for entering the arena. There is no way to create any work at all in this world without drawing criticism. And yet we must do our work, and let the results go. There is an old Bedouin expression: "The dogs bark; the caravan continues, anyway." So we continue, and let it be.
