ignored advice

Have you ever ignored the advice of others to do something your way? What happened? What would have happened if you had followed the advice given?

In the past I have ignored the advice of someone else because I believed that my way was better and would have a better result. This has happened most often at home when my mom has told me a way to do something around the house and I decided to not listen because I thought my way would be faster or more efficient than the way she had told me. More often than not it didn’t work out overly well for me, most of the time when I decide to take shortcuts making supper or doing chores something goes wrong and I have to start over and do the task again.

In these cases if I had taken my moms advice it would have saved me a lot of time, and I would have gotten stuff done correctly the first time. The thing is that it is often hard to figure out whether or not to follow someones advice, because some people do want you to succeed and are giving you proper advice but some people are not. When listening to peoples advice you have to follow your gut and do what you think will really benefit you in the long run.
