Last week we looked at how destructive unsolicited advice could be.  I suggested you start asking questions before you started piping up with all kinds of suggestions for your hapless friends, family and/or co-workers. This week, I want to give you 2 magic questions you can use when you absolutely MUST give the advice burdening your heart.  Before you speak… Ask yourself these 2 questions: 1.  What gives me the right? 2.  Is it in the best interest of the relationship?
