For anyone that knows anything about SEO the title for this blog would make you cringe. The only way anyone would ever find this post is via social media, email subscription, or spending hours searching.
Every bit of advice, or story I tell, I have someone in mind. Who knows… if I personally know you it might be you. Tim Ferris said when he wrote the 4-hour Work Week, that is how he did it. So I have done it ever since.
Here is the thing about me that you will learn very quickly… I am not a therapist. (In my opinion therapists live up to the name… the rapists. Look at your wallet when you are done with a session). I don’t like to hear problems. I like to fix problems. I don’t watch the news. In fact, the other day one of my kids had to ask me what the news was because he seriously didn’t know.
Easy… the news is where they tell you all about everyone that was killed today, and the sports scores.
It is depressing. Of course most people are. They are negative, love to complain, and just aren’t fun to be around.
When someone comes to you for advice, they really don’t want help. They want to complain about the problem.
Think about it, when you ask for advice about a situation, how often do you take the advice? By the time you get around to asking for advice, you know what you are going to say, or do. You have already resolved the situation in your head.
Then you said, “I did this… and I should have followed YOUR advice”
Do not ask for answers you do not want
If you have a problem, there is probably a resolution. And you probably already know the resolve. Why bother asking? Just do.
In all things just do. That statement sounds biblical or profound, but it isn’t. It is taught in pre-school.
“Just put one foot in front of the other
And soon you will be walking out the door”
Why do you think we teach that to school kids? Because it is easier to do something, than talk about it.
