Most advice is bad advice…
People mean well, especially friends and family, but they're going to give you bad advice.
This leads to two challenges as you strive to create original work that matters:
1. Ignore their advice, even the well-meant entreaties that you stick with the status quo
2. Try to discern the actually useful good advice, so you don't insulate yourself in the bubble of the self-deluded. In general, this good advice pushes you to go faster, or to do things that make you uncomfortable.
PS the irony of this post is not lost on me.
