“Do just once what others say you can’t do, and you will never pay attention to their limitations again.” – James R. Cook

I don’t usually pay attention to other people’s limitations, as I know what I can do and I just do it. But this made me wonder how many times I have imposed with well meaning advice, my own limitations on others, discouraging them with all of the reasons that something can’t work. Something new to think about when someone asks for advice. Letting them know what you see as potential pitfalls or considerations without making it a limitation would mean that you would treat it like an employee review? Start with the good idea that they have, sandwich in the consideration, and end with you know they can do it? Or do you think that you would do it differently?
