Need some words of wisdom? LinkedIn has compiled the “Best Advice I Ever Got” from more than 70 influencers. With contributions from folks like Martha Stewart, Richard Branson (practice what you preach), Deepak Chopra, and T. Boone Pickens (sit on your own bottom), there’s no shortage of good words on how to live, work and play.
Ashoka’s Bill Draton’s best advice is Don’t Follow It (bad advice): “The worst advice I (and almost everyone) have received and still receive, dose after dose, is: ‘Don’t do that.’ The supporting arguments vary little: ‘It’s not practical. It won’t work. You can’t make that fly. It will cost too much. It’s a crazy idea.'”
From Gretchen Rubin: “All you have to do is put on your running shoes and let the front door shut behind you.” Good advice for all couch potatoes trying to pick up an exercise habit–and really, for anyone trying to adopt a good habit. Just start.
