Two Types of Advice by Scott H Young and Well Rounded and the Other by Seth Godin

Scott H Young: Two types of advice, general and specific. General e.g. Steve Jobs Stanford Speech. Specific: why you got that calculus question wrong. General, though good, doesn’t always work. Specific advice, very valuable, could be the breakthrough you need.It’s the difference between reading a book on calculus, and having someone show you exactly why you got a question wrong.

Seth Godin: Sharp is often what we want. Well rounded gives you plenty of opportunities to shore up mediocrity with multiple options. Sharp is more frightening, because it’s this or nothing. Either can work, but it’s very difficult to be both.
