So much of the advice I’ve seen people giving, or advice that has been given to me, is full of generic bullshit. I don’t like to hear repetitive things I which are obvious, or I happen to already know. My strategy is to predict when this stinky ass bullshit is going to be thrown at me, so I can dodge it by countering with my own advice. But I will purposely make sure the advice is just as generic and bullshit filled as theirs, leaving them speechless. Sometimes it doesn’t work. Sometimes people don’t hear things unless they say it themselves.
And you can’t escape their advice laden with crap.
