Moving Anthills

What good is good advice and sage suggestions? What real good are the quips, the puns, and the familiar sayings? They’re uncovered everywhere, serendipitously present, over-present; they’re unsought out, and truly random in occurrence. Over and over, you hear them, and nod affirmatively. Predictable responses: “wow, so true, so right on!”.

What good do they really do?

There is such a giant gaping leap between hearing good advice, and living good advice, that the one is almost entirely different than the other. It really only takes just a starting push on the playground swing, a turn of the propeller, and it is the difference between moving, and standing still.

  1. People only ask for advice when they already know what to do but just don’t have the resolve to do it. What’s worse, people rarely find what it is that they are looking for, or know what they are looking for and find it.

    And exactly how does one turn a phrase?
