The Harvard Business Review Tip of the Day column has a great reminder: “Decide What YOU Think First.”
Getting advice is helpful (scripture says “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.” [Prov 15:22])
But sometimes that advice can simply confuse us.
The HBR reminds us that it is important for us to determine what WE think. Part of that is simply so that you are not overwhelmed by the voices of others, but also so that you can develop the ability to trust your own voice.
