Hiya! All of us at some point got advice that has stuck with us until this very day. Lets share them with world. Mine is “Think slow, act fast” - meaning take your time making the decision, but when you do - jump on it with mamba mentality.

Raitis, love the mamba mentality! There's been several pieces of advice that have stuck with me but I'll relate one: When I was first learning to drive my best friend's Mom (who was in the car with us) told us to always try to have an emergency escape maneuver, this is: keep away from other cars if possible to be able to move out of the way from an unexpected danger. I took this advice to heart and many years later it saved my life. A giant truck tire came flying out of the darkness one night heading right for my hood. I was clear of other cars and made an emergency lane change. The tire just missed me. I wrote my friend’s Mom a letter to says thanks.
Can't remember the exact quote but a previous manager of mine used to say if you've got something difficult to do light several fires to get it done - as at least one of them will succeed.
To write everything down. I have pages upon pages of the results of many a braindumping session, and, since it's all digital, organizing the info is no trouble at all + the search function gives me easy access to any part of it as well. P.S. sudden thought, as I'm writing the response - very commercialized but I must admit Nike's "Just do it" has to be THE best piece of advice I have ever heard from any source. It's an ongoing mantra I have in my head literally 24/7. Struggling to make a decision - Just do it. Procrastinating on a task - Just do it. Scared to make a move - Just do it. Marketing Gods, level 100.

@mynameisana ohh hell yeah about “Just do it.” As simple as commercialised it is - its very profound.

Never give up. For me, this is a reminder that I need to believe in myself and my abilities. At any time, you can drop everything and give up, and this is the simplest thing :)

Make some boundaries and learn to say NO.

@ihar_murashka I think we all have that problem, especially within family and that's normal, we care a lot and sometimes we just go against our will for their wellbeing. But I have problems with saying No in work conditions and I hate that.

You can't achieve something new by doing the same you have been doing before it. I really like it. So you constantly need to change your behaviour if you change your life goals.

Consistency is the key.
