I love the honest pragmatism of this piece, David. Thank you.

Sometimes the advice itself – the sheer amount of it and the often contradictory nature of it – can become more overwhelming than the problem or issue you’re trying to work out.

I have a tattoo that reads, ‘Whatever Works’ – it’s a great reminder that we’re all just muddling through as best we can and you have to find the things that work for you.

Anyway… great read.

P.S. How wonderful is JK Rowling? Love her.
