Many of us have mottos we live our lives by and pieces of advice shared by others that have changed the way we think and act on a daily basis. Others have discovered the secret to success in some area of our lives. (One my mother taught me: 1 tsp salt per cup of rice and DO NOT remove the lid from the pot until after it's finished cooking no matter what – one of the best cooking tips I've ever received. I had friends in college beg me to know how I made something as boring and bleh as rice be so delicious.)
So we're curious to know – what's the best advice you've ever received? The one tip you would pass on to your posterity and the world, whether it's serious or humorous, practical or inspirational? We'll pick our favorites to run in the March/April issue of our magazine, alongside advice from LDS greats like Jon Heder, Julie B. Beck, Michael McLean, Jimmer Fredette, Elaine Dalton, and more.
Please send your 1-sentence to 1-paragraph advice with your full name and city/state (may be anonymous if topic is sensitive) to editor[at]ldsliving[dot]com. (E-mail the editor.)
Submissions may be edited slightly for grammar, clarity, or length before publication.
