Imagine advice as a hot potato. You’ve got it in your hands, it’s valuable, it’s useful. But holding onto it? That doesn’t do much good. What you need to do is pass it on. Toss that potato.
See, advice is a peculiar commodity. Its worth doesn’t diminish with use, nor does it accumulate interest in storage. Its power is in circulation, in being passed from hand to hand. Like a key that opens a door only for others, never for the one holding it. Share the key, unlock the potential.
The wisdom of this paradox is simple: good advice, like a boomerang, returns value when it’s thrown out into the world. Hold onto it, and it’s a piece of wood. Toss it right, and it’s a flight of opportunity. So, next time you’re clutching that hot potato of wisdom, remember: throw, don’t hold. It’s the giving of advice, not the keeping, that makes all the difference.
