I communicate for a living, but somehow I manage to spend most of my day listening to other peoples thoughts and opinions on all sorts of shit they know absolutely nothing about.
I work from and run (With lots of help) a co-working space that various amount of companies operate from. It has a bar conveniently attached for the purpose of sanity.
Daily I’m told ‘You shouldn’t do that’ or ‘why don’t you do this.’ or My brothers next door neighbours mate did the same thing and retired at 40
Why is it that people with no skin in the game offer the most advice?
Why are those talkers rarely do-ers? What’s science behind that? Is there any?
In the last 12 months, I’ve had the pleasure to meet some very interesting do-ers. Christchurch is full them if you look in the correct places.
I’ve had conversations with people who have built companies from scratch. People who are operating successful businesses or just generally doing cool creative useful helping our society type of shit.
One thing they all seem to have in common is they offer no advice. Why is that?
I’m not saying don’t listen I am saying be careful who you listen too.
If you’re a do-er, keep doing it.
