Practice makes perfect, eh? Good advise. It feels as far off as the sun though for me. Maybe just *try* and *try* and *try.* I find though with, for example, my writing (I write screenplays) that it's *so* hard sometimes to see what's good objectively. Like the group I'm in will go absolutely nutso crazy good about something I've written and I have *no* clue, no ability to step outside myself--don't know what's "good"--it's quite frustrating! Right now I'm with an *amazing* collaborator who easily steps outside the work but man, when I'm inside it, I can't see a *thing* sometimes.
