A spectacular lie of adult life is how we pretend we’ll act on advice. We treat advice like we collect baseball cards: we categorize it, store it in the attic, and never look at it again.
If I have a superpower, it’s that I now act on great advice.
Advice, on the other hand, is an instruction set for how to live. It’s complex knowledge—like the textbook lessons learned in school. To implement knowledge, you need to understand it, practice it, and sometimes memorize it.
