On Taking Advice

On Taking Advice

Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.

This week, we’re thinking about Taking Advice. Actor, martial artist and philosopher Bruce Lee said it best:

Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.

Not all advice is equal. Advice is only as good as the actions it inspires you to take.

I've needed advice in difficult situations and received conflicting thoughts on how I should handle them. That made me feel way more lost because I didn't have the confidence. One thing that's helped me is taking the time to develop your own perspective and more importantly, trust in yourself, before reaching out to others. Then only will you have the power to adapt, reject and add.

We'd love to hear from you!

How do you know what to do based on opposing advice? When do you start trusting yourself and your decision in this 'advisory' process?

 



A few things for you to click on:

📖  When and When Not To Take Advice - Great overview from Tiny Buddha 

📖  The Art of Giving and Taking Advice - Harvard Business Review discusses these rarely taught skills.
 

That's all! Wishing you all great week of sorting through (wanted and unwanted) advice you might get this week and upcoming weekend.

Warmly,
Jesal
