Advice vs Information

For those of you who don’t know, I am a huge comedy fan. This tip actually comes from one of my favorite comedians, Kevin Hart. He mentioned the value of sharing information over giving advice. When you give someone advice, you are sharing with them what was successful for you. This is fine, however you are not taking into account that everybody’s situation is vastly different. Cookie cutter methods don’t usually work. Kevin went on to share e that sharing information can be more helpful. You are providing facts that enable them to translate it into what might work for them personally. You are helping them create their own strategy for their vision by giving them the tools they need. Additionally, it can be hard to give advice to people you don’t know overly well, without sounding condescending. This week, try to share information when tempted to give a personal story of advice.
