This site operates on the principle that there is no such thing as good advice.


  • Give no advice
  • Seek no advice
  • Accept no advice

In any discussion, neither party can be fully aware of the others’ context and so they are not able to give good advice. This means that nothing you read on this site should be construed as advice since I, as an author writing on a broadcast medium, am not aware of your context.

So, does this mean that there is nothing to learn? Or that mentorship relationships are not valuable? Should you stop seeing the doctor? Absolutely not. The teacher / mentor / doctor is in a position of information asymmetry whereby they may have more knowledge or experience in their respective domain than the student / mentee / patient. The job of the teacher / mentor / doctor is to provide knowledge and experience such that the mentee can make up their own mind, given their own context, so that they can make the right decision for themselves.
