When people come to you for advice, what’s your first reaction?
I’ve personally noticed that the best leaders and mentors I’ve had rarely provide solutions. They resist the urge to offer their expertise although they clearly know much more than me on the topic. Even when we are trying to move fast, their response almost always comes in the form of a question.
Your advice isn’t as good as you think it is. We don’t need all the answers. We need to learn how to refine our thought process and come up with our own conclusions.
PS take the advice purposed in this post with a grain of salt.
