THE PERILS OF ADVICE
If you’re an avid viewer of HBO’s hit series, Game of Thrones, you would know that Tyrion Lannister is among one of the most cleverest characters on the show. Known for being unusually skilled at reason and planning, his go to niche have been less than stellar this season. As most of his plans are foiled by his enemies outsmarting his moves every step of the way. Eventually his queen (Daenarys Targaryen ) eventually grows tired of his clever schemes and take matters into her own hands.
Which brings us to our key lesson of today , we have to learn when it is time to stop listening to the advice of others. Most of the time advice from your closest council (parents,friends,etc) stems for good intention. However we must remember that those who issue the advice don’t have to live with the consequences of the decision completely like we would have to. Earlier Daenarys is even warned by an elderly lady ally of hers named Olenna Tyrell, that she should think twice about listening to every word of Tyrion’s and she should harness more of what makes her unique in the first place. She is a fearless conqueror not a master thinker like Tyrion.
When we take advice from others it should be dissected and well evaluated before any of the said advice is implemented. Also it is important to note that a keen intuition triumphs an overly concocted plan any day. Therefore be weary of advice, double down on your instincts and make it a habit to double take the words of your advisors.
