A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I used to professionally give advice to people. Some listened, some didn't. Anyway, fast forward. My wife has been handling something for the last couple of years and has not listened to my advice once. Predictably, the matter has become a bigger and more expensive mess. A part of me really wants to yell, but for some inexplicable reason, I decided to put myself in her shoes. Focus: Do you listen and follow anyone else's advice? What about? Are there preconditions to following it in your head? In other words, what approach works for getting you to follow someone else's advice? Alt Focus: Has someone listened to your advice and it's gone horribly wrong? Did they blame you?
