What generally annoys me about the advice pieces on Medium — and all advice pieces, in fact — is that everything they tell you is stuff I heard growing up.

Funny (not literally ironic) that so many advice authors failed to heed that piece of advice about knowing the history of the subject.

Like what you read? Give Mike Sturm a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
