I would advise you to to be careful about whose advice you take. There are plenty of people who think they know the answer to everything – as long as it doesn’t involve them bleeding themselves. They are always prepared to give advice, and to insist that they give the very best available. Of course, it is always possible to ask for and receive conflicting advice. Any time you ask for advice from more than one person, there is almost a guarantee that you will garner separate and different advice from each and every one, each convinced that he (or she) alone has all the answers.

Once you have asked around and collected advice from all quarters, naturally, you need advice on which advice will give you the advice you need. It is at this point, that you need to consider if you really needed advice at all.

There are times when too much advice can be too much of a good thing. At other times, too much advice can lead to delays and prevarication to the point where, whatever it was that you needed advice on has happened, not happened, been put off, been cancelled or otherwise moved on to the back-burner on the hot-dog stand of urgency and so the advice, while interesting has considerably reduced value.

There are other times when you get advice whether you like it or not and whether you like it or not, sometimes, decisions have to be made based on that advice without any advice as to the validity of that advice.
