Take It From Me



Take It From Me

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve given someone that you failed to take yourself?

I don’t give advice to friends… or even associates. (On the job, I have to offer possibilities and assist in decision making… but that is work.) In my private relationships, advice is for the Dear Abby’s of the world, or one of the current internet sensations.

I listen, sometimes assist in creating a Pros / Cons List, and then release my friend for his own decision-making. It’s like being an exquisite, fisherman. When you are blessed with being caught in a great relationship, don’t kill it by landing it ashore and then filleting it for consumption. Listen and release. Always the best policy.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Take It From Me.”

I'd love to hear from you. It's nice to know other people are out there.
