Advice is not difficult


Merlin Mann from an episode of Back to Work:

I think giving people advice is very simple. It’s almost too easy to give people advice, and to say, “Okay, you have a problem? Here’s how to fix it.” I think your problem is not a lack of advice, it’s a lack of understanding. And before a lot of advice can be really useful, it’s good to understand why you need that advice.
