Best advice you have ever given or been given?

Recommended Posts

Looking back at all the advice you have ever given people, or been given from someone, which one piece of advice would you class as gold-dust and why?

Explain why ;)

Mine: Never use a can of Air to remove food from your teeth - reason: I did not realise it was a solvent until I tried it :blink:

Not to take advice from anyone. People are well meaning but no one knows your situation like you. Make your own decisions and learn from the mistakes. I tell everyone who asks me for advice in real life because every piece of advice I give turns out to be wrong.

My friend convinced me to conquer my fear of the ocean and do a scuba dive course.

Now I live on a little island and teach people how to scuba dive. I used to be an IT consultant.

Best career change ever :D

The problem with that, is people shouldn't follow the advice you are giving to "Not take advice from anyone". :p

Never expect anything but never underestimate the unexpected.

Somewhat of a little motto I've gone by for a very long time and definitely pass that advice on any chance I get.

Explain. Result? Pain, or other damage?

Something I always tell people who work for me is something along the lines of "The more aware you are of your surroundings, the better control you will have over your situation". I just tell them to basically notice all the details, no matter how small or stupid they may seem. Someday down the line you are going to be in a situation, and you will know what to do. If you are able to understand the entire process of your job, like why things happen and when they happen, then you are much more likely to succeed.

"Get a college education." Was living in the Projects at the time, and not seeing anyway out one of the guys working with us at the youth center would tell us kids to get a college education every day. To make a long story short after six years of college and twenty-one years in the Navy along with a position as a "VP" for a large transportation company I was able to retire quite well off. . . :)

Expect the worst, so when it happens you're not disappointed.

Best piece of advice I ever got came from a young man I was exchanging letters with--I had asked him a really stupid (I thought) question in a letter, and when he wrote back, he told me, "The only stupid question is the one you never ask." I don't know why, but that just stuck with me. He was attending the U.S. Naval Academy at the time, so I assume he knew what he was talking about!! :)
