Not all advice you will receive throughout your life and career will be good for you. In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I share about the importance of developing and fine-tuning your filter of advice so that you are able to discount what is not helpful, think about what is useful, and apply what is important.
Five Ways You Can Fine-Tune Your Filter for Advice
- Know who you are, what you want, and what you do. But more than that: Be okay with it.
- Experiment with new ideas before you accept them at face value.
- Look for the proof: numbers (the bottom line, not vanity metric) and stories of impact.
- Know where your customers come from and be there.
- Don’t forget to work.
