Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Everyone has an opinion.
Everyone has an opinion about what you should be doing and how.
Usually, you don’t.
Usually people go from task to task without listening to the voice within them.
That doesn’t mean you don’t accept input. It’s important to hear the input but from people who have your best interest at heart and not from the people who want to control you and judge you.
That’s particularly true at work. It’s also true at home.
Asking for advice is smart.
Not acting on it is dumb.
It makes you an “ask-hole.”
You don’t have to act on the advice immediately. If anything, you should listen and think before you act.
That act you must after you hear others opinions,
