Too Many Experts...

There’s an old saying “Know what you don’t know”. There’s also a saying “know when to keep your mouth shut”.

Today, I’m surrounded by people that have obviously never heard these sayings. Everyone is offering up their opinion on how things should be handled. If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times “if I were you…”

I’m all for taking advice when I ask for it and I’ll even accept it when I need it and haven’t asked for it. I’m not one for unsolicited opinions on topics that these so-called “experts” know nothing about.

There is nothing wrong with simply smiling and walking away – it makes you look intelligent and keeps people guessing what your next move will be.

“It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people
think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.” – Mark Twain
