South Africans were encouraged to share their good advice. It could be any good advice that you had given, received or heard. The drive behind the campaign was to share good advice to make the world a better place!
There are close to 400 people who have shared their good advice in August on #GoodThingsGoodAvice across social media platforms. It is inspiring to see South Africans getting involved. It shows the importance of communication and how we all have a piece of good advice to share. Even one of the greatest investors of all time, Warren Buffet, shared his advice for “all the young people”. Since this tweet came out, it has since been confirmed that this twitter account has no association to the real Warren Buffet. Nevertheless it still is GREAT advice!
Advice for the all the young people:
1 read and write more
2 stay healthy and fit
3 networking is about giving
4 practice public speaking
5 stay teachable
6 find a mentor
7 keep in touch with friends
8 you are not your job
9 know when to leave
10 don’t spend what you don’t have

CN&CO’s word nerd, Colin Ford, agreed with this advice but challenged the notion that it was only for young people. He says everyone can take something away from it regardless of their age. After all, it’s just a number, isn’t it?
Good Things Guy released a few of his favourite pieces of good advice that have been shared so far. Read the full blog here and see if there is anything that you can take out from the good advice that has been shared.
