What is the proper response to praise? How should we act when others tell us how talented we are? Downplay? Demur? Or quickly try to deflect with a compliment of our own for them? Maybe we should we analyze their comments for ulterior motives.

Nope.

The best response to praise from anyone for any reason is an honest–and for style points–gracious, “Thank you.”

 

In your corner,

Mike

PS: Turns out that this is also the best response to any criticism.
