On the other hand...

Perhaps everyone *was* adding value by telling you that you need to
prioritize, and you need to consider the goal rather than following the
exact steps you used at Arvixe.

If your friend divorced his wife, then said he wanted a woman with
seven qualities that his ex had, but he wanted this next one to be
more reliable, what would you tell him? Would your advice add value?
