Advice for Living

I've never purported to be an expert, but I do get asked for a lot of advice.  I saw Katie promoting her new book and started to think about advice that I've received over the years.  Some of it works well and other.. let's just say that  everyone's style doesn't work for everyone.

One of my mentors told me about the saying, "the best thing you can give your children is roots and wings".  It is one that I tried to remember when my kids were growing up.

And I have a very smart brother in law who says, "Keep the big things big, and the little things, little."  It sounds almost trite, but if you think about it, it's pretty good advice.

This sign says something worthwhile.  Although it's probable that if you need this advice, it might be too late.

So today, I'm asking you, what is some of the best advice you've ever received or given?
