Advice feedback

I got many people’s advice as I grew up and made decisions. Those who had already been to the same junctions tried to help me by sharing their experiences.

It is only when I started to give advice that I realized how I wronged many of my advisors.

I did thank them. But I did not give many of them feedback on their advice. That would have allowed them to test their experiences, and made them better advisors.

Now I face the same problem.

More often than not, I don’t hear back after I advised someone. They thank me on the spot, but I’d rather get feedback than a thank you.

Do you contact the people who advised you to tell them whether or not their suggestions helped? Do the people you advised give you feedback on how things went?

Without feedback, bad advice persists.
