Posted on June 29, 2012When I first signed up for The Listserve some time ago I was full of skepticism, hopes and delusion. Then the projects started and I started to receive email after email; Beautiful words forming advice, tips and precautions that everyone really should take part of. Irregardless of it’s purpose – it is fun hearing about other people.
Myself, I am some what of a metaphorically half-blind Sherlock Holmes and have some academic background in everything human. What I would like to add is some, although paradoxical, insight into the human condition. The problem, as I see it with most things in life, is that 99% of people never ever – listen – to – advice. You have your life and live it by the understanding your experiences have shaped over time. It takes a unique openness and self control – insight – to actually adapt your life to things you have not yet realized yourself.
“What I’m about to tell you is the result of really smart academic inquiry and deep insight: My advice is to listen to advice. You’re listening? Okay good. No, that was it. What?”
