Easier to give than receive

That's true of advice and career help. It's often easiest to offer an opinion than hear one; it's easier to help someone make a connection or re-evaluate a career choice than give similar direction to yourself.

Why might that be?

Partially because our own insecurities get in the way? Because, when we're at a cross-roads, there are often more questions than a sense of direction?

The next time I offer advice or guidance, I will try and remember it's hard to receive…even when it's requested. I will also remember that asking for help or advice can be a great strength if I genuinely want what's offered.

The question I'm asking you today is: how do you know when it's time to re-evaluate?
