Hello Paul - the quote will need to be re-read as it has been forgotten. The photo, on the other hand, is memorable.

What a wonderful quote, Paul. Never thought of advice in quite this way. Now I'll never un-think it! And a wonderful picture to go with the quote.

I have to admit that I don't know much about snow and in fact, I am quite proud of that, haha.

Snow used to be a four letter word in my household and now I look at it in all its beauty Brian England

Paul, When advice is given, sometimes we need to deliver it without any negative references. Maybe there will be more thought about it.

That's certainly a positive way to look at advice and perhaps how to share it. Love the photo of that pup in the snow!

Hi Paul- we all don't react well to being told how to do something or told what to do. Placed gently on a silver tray, the advice is  better received.

In my first job after the Navy I realized I needed to start at the bottom to learn from my coworkers and take their advice which was never give it easily Kathy Streib
