Advising self

without comments

We do tend to take better care of others than we do ourselves. It’s so much easier to tell someone else how to make a positive change than to come to good conclusions about our own lives.

I’ve used that tendency to my own advantage many times, both in my own life and in my coaching of other people.

When someone comes to me and asks for advice, and I haven’t the slightest idea what to tell them, I ask, “If someone came to you with this same problem, what would you tell them to do?” I love the fact that they almost always come up with a great solution to their own problem.

Think More Rationally by Pretending You’re Giving Advice to Someone Else
