The Best Time To Give Advice

Okay, it’s the fifth Tuesday in October, so it’s time for a short quiz. Number 2 pencils out, eyes on your own paper, and begin…

Question:  The best time to give advice is:

a)      When a colleague has just shared a painful employee issue, and you faced a similar one once.

b)     When a friend has just clicked “send” on an angry email to her client that you never would’ve sent.

c)      When your spouse is steaming broccoli for dinner, and you think broccoli is best roasted.

d)      None of the above.

 Answer: d.

Because, of course, the best (only?) time to give others advice…is…when they ask for it.

(P.S. I need to take this quiz regularly.)
