I call this “unicorns-and-rainbows advice.” Sure, it sounds good and it probably makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. But it’s not actually based on anything more substantial than “truthiness”
Unicorns-and-rainbows advice is the modern-day equivalent of folksy superstitions and old wives’ tales.
Take a couple of time-honored adages repeated ad nauseum, add in the unquestioning awe of an unaware audience, and pretty soon you’ve got an entire industry based on easy-to-agree-with but unsubstantiated ideas.
not the outcome of a process; it’s superstition, guessing, and praying.
