Where do you go for advice?
I was looking for direction for my blog a while back. I turned to a trusted friend and this is what he had to offer.
“David, keep working hard. Truly, the harder you work, the luckier you get.
But we have to make sure the devil doesn’t make us too busy, and we let our blind ambition, erase our intuition….
You may find that as you teach (xxxxxxx), you will learn additional things you didn’t see before. To teach is to learn twice.
Also, play around with your 30-second elevator speech. Write a few versions, sit on them for a while, come back a day, week, month later…do you still like them or want to refresh them…
Do you have an expert to go to for advice? A trusted friend? A wise sage who will teach you more about life than give you step-by-step instructions.
This kind of friend propels you to greatness and asks for nothing in return. If someone asks you for advice, be this kind of friend for them.
PS. I’ve kept the email response for almost two years. I’ll be keeping it a bit longer. 🙂
