You have many times face yourself that if you’re talking to someone about anything they start giving you advice, like for saying you are telling your friend how you got late today, they immediately advise you “areey, why you don’t travel by metro?” you should take metro, its time saving.. blah blah blah! At that time we were like yar shut up, I don’t need your advice, I am just telling you how I got late, not asking you what to do? Ughh! They don’t understand the difference between, “when a person is telling something or asking your advice.”
So I will tell you how to make them understand that “How to Keep Kaam Se Kaam”?
1. Clearly tell them- If the person offering the advice, because you brought the topic up, you might clarify why you advising me, Say “I wasn’t looking for advice. I just needed to share,” This can help the friendly bearer of advice decide that he doesn’t need to solve the problem for you!
- Taunt them – making them understand is not helping out, it’s time to taunt them, use phrases like- “why don’t you start your career as advisor?, you always keep on advising everybody!” your facial expression are important when you taunt them, make your eyes wide open and say bluntly.
- Surprise act- Say like you are surprised! Like- Wow, I didn’t know you were an expert on that! Have you written a book about that? That’s really sweet that you want to share your knowledge with me.” But don’t say this politely.
- Avoid them– avoid them by saying you need to go somewhere, thank them and then wave goodbye as you express the urgent need to go somewhere. Also to break the momentum you could promise to call or email if, or when, you need more information.
