Advice Is Like Paint

Advice is like paint; sometimes you have to take it home and apply it to your walls to know if it will work in your space.

This is the page where I post my idealism, realism, wishism—well all my -isms. Ideas I have formulated into advice for me.

 

These are the opinion buttons. Feel free to push them at any time.

  1. Advice is like paint; sometimes you have to take it home and apply it to your walls to know if it works in your space.
  2. The best recognition of good advice is application.
  3. Listen without planning your answer . . . listen to understand.
  4. If you finish a time of meditation and feel superior—you are a fool. If you finish a time of meditation and feel blessed—do not move. If you finish a time of meditation and identify a way to improve, moving to improve, leave your blessed meditation.
  5. Do you want accuracy or precision? There is a difference.
  6. Invest in yourself. It will pay dividends for the rest of your life.
  7. I can persuade a person who cannot hear, but not a person who will not listen.
  8. Mirrors are fine as long as you check the interior as often as you check the exterior.
  9. If X marks the spot, what is why for?
  10. Compassion is the beginning of all morality—so never lie to yourself.
  11. Create: there are so few people who can do that magic.
  12. May I have the compassion to touch every Ivy I meet with an unconditional love, the wisdom to render a path of hope, and the strength to bear any scar along the way.
