Not all advice is worth taking. So, how do you know when you are getting bad advice?
Is the advice coming from a know-it-all?
Does the person offering advice reflect on their own past mistakes?
Is the advisor asking thoughtful questions?
Does the person offering advice tell you what you should do or leave room for you to make up your own mind?
Sometimes it’s obvious: the best advice often comes from the person who is trying to understand the situation and help you make a good, well-informed decision.
