Read self-help that makes sense

A rule of thumb is that wisdom should make sense. It is general and obvious advice. If it is not immediately obvious, it is rarely right.

When you hear something, ask:

  • Is this an obvious universal truth?
  • Does it make sense?
  • Can I apply this to a variety of situations?

If you answer "no", you are probably not dealing with wisdom.
