On Giving & Receiving Advice
Today’s reflection is on advice, especially giving it to others when not asked for it.
Don’t we all like doing it? At least once in a while?
It seems like we are all experts when it comes to giving advice. I wonder why it is so easy to give advice to others.
I think Oscar Wilde made a point saying “I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.”
Personally, I have to admit, the best advice I’ve ever received is the same one that Frank Ghery got, “to be yourself. The best artists do that.”
