The Point Of Advice Is Not To Follow It…But To Understand It


The point of advice is not to simply, blindly, follow it.

The point of advice is to help you understand.

Then, once you have gathered the various pieces of advice, you need to run it all through your own filters.

How does that advice make sense to you, in your context, in relation to your previous experiences, where you want to be, etc.

Once you’ve done that, then you make your own decision.

Don’t absolve yourself of the responsibility for the decision by simply following someone else’s advice.

NB: Shout out to Matthew Kobach on Twitter for the wise words.
