Objective feedback for creative work: why it is so important?

Feedback is a mirror. In an ideal case, it is a distortion-free mirror that can show you exactly where you are in your journey(craft). It does not label or judge anything as good or bad. It only sees where you are, and maybe point out the possible pitfalls in your journey. It can also offer a reality-check on what you are doing and what you “think” you are doing. And in competent hands, this process can be extremely helpful. It helps you get fresh new ideas. It helps you grow.
