Advice Often Stinks

Our differences make the world interesting, don’t they? And they also cause conflict.

We all know others who have some expertise where we don’t and vice-versa.

Sometimes we pay cash for the exchange, but mostly we just try to help each other out.

Yesterday at Gold’s Gym, a friend talked of running a 5k. It would be his first.

I’m a good runner, but more than that, I’m an expert at focus and discipline (and motivation).

Do you know what you are an expert at?

I caught myself doling out advice (after it was asked for), but then caught myself a second time – and backed up, to ask a simple question.

“Why do you want to run a 5k?”
