After being given an assignment for my writing group on the subject of advice I thought about it and all that came to my mind was that I wished that I had never given any advice to anyone whether I was asked for it or not. I can not remember a single time when it turned out well. My perspective on things didn’t usually match with the person I was talking with. Usually they were too polite to say so, fortunately. Hopefully they didn’t even try to follow the advice. I now have just one set piece of advice and it will serve me well if I can only remember it for myself. Here it is, the Golden Rule.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
