Sound Advice?

I’m preparing for a talk I’m giving to a corporate’s diversity group this week, and found myself remembering some of the best and worst advice I’ve been given in terms of my career.

The best:
1. know yourself and
2. be yourself

And the worst (well not advice actually but memorable all the same) from my headteacher on the day I left school, ‘you’ll never make anything of yourself because you talk too much’. Luckily that comment didn’t put me off, but I’d imagine it might have a different effect on other people.

I’d love to hear your thoughts – what great and/or terrible advice have you received?
