If you want it come and get it (David Gray)

I read (and recommend you do too) Matthew McConaughey's address to students with his 13 lessons learned and it made me think about advice.

Btw - hilarious photo - love the look on the academics behind him!

I like the sentiment expressed in the suncream monologue
Be careful whose advice you buy but be patient with those who supply it.Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the pastfrom the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly partsand recycling it for more than it's worth.
Damn straight, but it doesn't stop us being interested in the advice that is offered in addresses like McConaughey's.

Personally, when faced with a difficult decision I like a combination of Obi Wan Kenobi (trust your feelings) and David Gray (Let go your heart; Let go your head: And feel it now).
