The Advice Trap - Repetition

Here’s something to think about it… 


With any skill you are trying to develop, repetition is key and so is getting back to it when you fail. Notice I said when – yes, no one is perfect, and we all will fail. When discussing Michael Stanier’s book, “The Advice Trap” where we need to rush to advice giving a little slower, he emphasizes these concepts. He notes that it’s an opportunity to notice something new about you and your Advice Monster and will allow you to reset, reground, and get ready for the next conversation. He also includes a couple quotes I enjoyed: 

  • We don’t rise to the occasion. We fall to the level of our training.” – “allegedly a US Navy Seal slightly misquoting the Greek poet Archilochus” 

  • Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” – Samuel Beckett  


My question to you: What do you do when you fail?
