Context is crucial when it comes to whether advice is right for you or not. There’s so much dogmatic advice floating around these days, it’s easy to be sent down the wrong path.
Here are a couple of great quotes that can serve as a reminder to be mindful and do your own thinking when taking on advice:
“Any advice that’s targeted to large established companies is irrelevant, distracting and potentially damaging in growing and managing a startup” - Steve Blank
“Every piece of business advice should have a label that includes what stage and type of startups it’s applicable for. Since this doesn't exist, it’s your job to filter advice based on what’s relevant to you.” - Hiten Shah
