Unsolicited Advice

It’s good…


Most of us only ask for advice when we want someone to give us new reasons to do what we had already decided to do.

We’re looking more for validation than challenge.

You too?

Well, I don’t know this guy, but I love some of his advice, like this:

  • Don’t ever work for someone you don’t want to become.
  • Your growth as a conscious being is measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations you are willing to have.
  • Courtesy costs nothing. Lower the toilet seat after use. Let the people in the elevator exit before you enter. Return shopping carts to their designated areas. When you borrow something, return it in better shape (filled up, cleaned) than when you got it.

And this one that brought back memories of childhood, when vacations were more about cars than planes:

  • To keep young kids behaving on a car road trip, have a bag of their favorite candy and throw a piece out the window each time they misbehave.

Hey, I think there were times when my parents wanted to throw out one of us children and eat the candy themselves.
