"Advice is one of those things it is far more blessed to give than to receive."
Roger Erdvig is the President/Founder of the Center for the Advancement of Christian Coaching. As we talked together over lunch he shared with me his passion for coaching. During our exchange he shared three lessons he learned from the world of construction, two from his father and one from his grandfather.
His father demonstrated the importance of practice when he allowed him to make mistakes with pieces of oak. Roger said he ruined 10 pieces of wood but with each mistake he learned a little more.
Another important lesson his father taught him was that you can buy an awful lot with an egg sandwich. If he bought coffee or a sandwich for his employees, it fostered enormous good will. People can be told they are cared about without spending a lot of money.
Finally, it was Roger's grandfather who advised him, "Steal all you can with your eyes." Over the years his grandfather watched and learned from everyone: the tile man, the electrician, the plumber, the brick layer, etc. He was a lifelong learner and he encouraged his grandson to be the same.
That is really great advice. What is the best advice you have ever been given? I've been asking that question and I am always fascinated by the answers. Here are a few.
