• all advice is context-dependent to a degree people don't realize until they encounter a different context
  • each great piece of advice often has a valid counterpoint that applies in a different context advice can often be weaponized in some way to justify getting back on your bullshit any sufficiently caveated advice is indistinguishable from chaos

  • taking advice literally can be more damaging than any particular piece of advice:
  • if you follow anybody's advice down to the letter, then you are condemned to be limited to the letter
  • other people's advice can be a psychic prison if you're not careful
