It is easy to give advice from a port of safety.

When advice is freely given, the receiver is free to use it as he or she sees fit.
When I was a kid, I got really great advice from someone who is so important to me and someone who I respect so much, and they told me, 'Don't do too many endorsements. Don't throw your name on things; think of your longevity.'
'Never Have Your Dog Stuffed' is really advice to myself, a reminder to myself not to avoid change or uncertainty, but to go with it, to surf into change.
When you seek advice, do not withhold any facts from the person whose advice you seek.
If anybody seeks your advice, offer right and sincere advice.
Never forget, the real secret of giving advice is this: Once you've given it, don't concern yourself with whether it is followed or not, and refrain from saying 'I told you so.'
