Stop asking what others think

Don’t get me wrong! Having many advisors and counters is critical. The key here is to remember what is “critical” FOR.

Is it critical because if you ask for help, you will get everything done right every time?

Is it critical because other people know better?

Is it critical because you are not the type of person who can decide on your own?

No.

It is critical because when you talk to others, you kick off your critical thinking. And that’s critical.

crit·i·cal think·ing

noun

  1. the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue to form a judgment.

Think well. Think critically. Listen to others. Get other’s opinions. LOTS of them! BUT remember why you are doing it. You are doing it so YOU can form an opinion, not so you can borrow someone else’s.
