Three words of advice

I have this thing for three word sentences.

They’re so perfect. So simple. So pithy. So rhythmic. So memorable.

I think some of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever received were only three words long.

For example:

Ask, “What’s next?” (Thanks, Pam Pellette)
Ask, “Why me?”
Assault the minute.
Attract through attitude.
Authenticity, not charisma.
Avoid the always.
Be a sleeper.
Be completely original.
