Where do you get yours from?

The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it, to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not, and never persist in trying to set people right.  ~Hannah Whitall Smith

I would never persist in trying to set people right, I simply don't have the time nor would I have the inclination. Remaining indifferent to whether advice is taken or not is an essential survival tool in this game. However when I do give advice I would never expect it to be used against me, especially when the advice given is not adhered to, applied or understood properly. Its often interesting and sometimes very frustrating to see it re-emerge and re-interpreted completely incorrectly!

When I need it, the type of advice and who I seek it from is generally based on a few things like education, a lot of trust, many years of valid comparative experiences and demonstrated years of business. I take it and use it and learn from it and at times I apply it or not,I am on my own journey! I don't use it to beat the people I got it from because I don't understand it fully or have applied it incorrectly.

In the midst of whats available out there to you don't confuse good bass fishing advice with someones imagined angling competency!

I promise I wont set you right...
