Best Professional Advice You've Received


Recommended Posts

  • Veteran Member

Salaam, 

I was fortunate enough to have a mentor when I started my professional life. I went to him a couple of times with some work problems and he said, "(ShiaMan) - don't come to me with problems; come to me with solutions. When you come to me with problems, after a couple of times I will cringe every time I see you because I will automatically think you have a problem. But you come to me with a solutions to problem, all of a sudden you become the answer guy or the guy who solves problems, not creates them"

This was the best, professional advice I received and it really works.

What's the best business/professional advice you've received?

That's great. 

Best career advice I got came from one of my bosses: "There is always a solution. It's our job to find it. Usually there is more than one. We gotta find the best one for our project and our client."

Many but one that comes to mind is when the district manager once told that "sometimes the longer way is the shorter way" . At first I was like what the hell does that mean but after it marinated a little bit I realized what he meant.

This is my advice to my team and my mentee (similar to @notme). I say this to my family as well:

"It's only a problem if there is no solution and there is always a solution"

We always hear good advice from family, friends and professional circles but can't recall anything that stands out. If a movie, ''Coach Cater", passes as a mentor, this one does it for me!

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure"
