Choose the Advice You Follow Carefully
As I Always Say...
At the start of 2018 I started adding some form of the following to the end of each of my written pieces.
Standard disclaimer: Just because you read something on the internet does not mean it's great advice for you. Remember to experiment with what "sounds good" to you, and discard the rest.
While this disclaimer seems to state the obvious, many people don't keep it in mind when they read articles from a myriad of sources, listen to podcasts on the way to work, and binge on YouTube, cooking or home improvement shows, or even talk with their friends and family.
Should I Take This Advice?
This may be, perhaps, the only article I write in which I encourage you to take my advice. Taking every piece of advice one reads as though it applies to them and must be implemented is a great way to live a life of disappointment. This strategy leads to potentially harsh self-judgement when one realizes they simply can't install everything they've absorbed into their own lives.
What's Your Experience?
Do you identify with what's written above? Can you think of times that you tried to take every piece of advice you ingested? How'd that work out? Comment below or on my Ask the Coach channel on Discord.
