Late last night in my attempt to get caught up with some magazine reading I started reading the latest issue of Fortune called The Best Advice Issue that featured 19 people, from business, entertainment & politics, sharing the best advice they ever got. This was probably not the best thing to be reading for someone who stays up late to begin with. The content of magazine got my mind racing and pondering what has been the best advice I have ever received. I am still pondering.
I hope you will be prodded to pick up this issue. A couple of things stood out. One, who they received the advice from and second, at what stage of their life they received the advice. (When you read the article you will see what I mean.)
This prodded me to consider the weight of my words. You never know how your words may affect someone. Our words of encouragement might be just the fuel or insight someone may need.
