Should all good advices be taken?
Quick Answer: No.
Before giving expert advice, I ask lots of questions. One half of my digital marketing consultations is questions.
This isn’t random.
You see, good advices can save your life. Good advices can also screw you up.
Just because something worked for me doesn’t mean it would work for you. What worked for you yesterday might not work today.
The right question isn’t: Should all good advices be taken?
The right question is: How do you approach life?
Quick Answer: With awareness. Just like driving.
Life is nuanced.
There are evergreen life principles, but there are also ever-changing factors.
Times change. People change. Situations change.
Even you change.
You have to be aware of changing topographies and time-sensitivity. Be aware of short windows and temporary loopholes.
When confused, ask questions. When the answers confuse you, call experts.
Lest you get screwed. Life can be unforgiving. Good intentions isn’t a remedy for ignorance.
Accept wisdom when it comes. But process it further with wisdom.
A wise advice in the mind of a fool is worse than a foolish advice in the mind of the wise.
