For today, ask yourself: When I’m faced with unsolicited wisdom in the form of advice, can I focus on letting it soak in versus judging the merits of it on-the-spot?” ( Can I practice by saying, “Thanks for the feedback” or “Wow, I never thought of it that way,” and just walk away for now?)
Distilled Nugget: Once I was doing a Word Find (quite well) on a plane when a six-year-old said, “It looks like you could use help.” He said, “It’s easier and quicker to put a line through the words instead of circling them.” Part of me wanted to take him to the mat, but when I stopped to ponder his suggestion, I found it did save half the time, effort, and resources (ink). Wisdom does not discriminate; it flows when it’s true. Be open for it to find you from anyone or anywhere.
