Take Your Own Medicine

When was the last time you gave advice to someone?

We often offer advice that is true to our values and beliefs - no matter what form it comes in (thought-of-the-day, a formula, 5 steps, etc). However, do you follow through and walk your talk?

For example, my dad would say "Son, you need to eat more healthy." Yet, he grabs a bag of chocolate 5 minutes later or your boss would say "You need to be on time and focus on your work. While you're at it, cut out the distractions." In the back of your mind, you're thinking your boss is the person who needs time management help the most." 

You are giving out medicine, did you try it before? People don't follow and respect people because they offer advice. They look up to those who live it.
