A couple week ago my cousin called me to ask for some career advice.
It was an emotional moment for me. I did the same thing a few years ago and I have benefited from career advice from strangers who are doing very well in their own field.
I’ve also received (I didn't ask for it) bad advice from “experts” who turned out to be tree trolls.
So I shared three important lessons I learned about “advice” with my cousin.
This is a story about how I learned to tidy up.
I always thought I was so good at organizing and cleaning. I arranged everything based on floor plan (making it “user friendly” as tech people like to call it).
About a month ago, I came across a book about tidying up. I cringed. Who the heck would write a book about putting your stuff away and more importantly, what kind of human being would read it?!
Out of curiosity, I got a copy and started reading.

If you’re honest with yourself, most of your Fridays don’t feel much like a “workday”.
You’re tired from a whole week’s work, your emails start piling up. Plus, your weekend is around the corner. It’s getting more difficult to get quality work done.
Sometimes you even feel like you have so much to do and you decide to organize your desk instead.
