The worst possible answer you can get to a question is: “It depends.”

“It depends” is often a cop out for fear of being proven wrong.
It is better to be prescriptive and wrong, than vague and right.
Getting a prescriptive answer leads to action which leads to learning.

An open ended answer simply extends action paralysis.

“It depends” is often a cop out for fear of not having enough information.
You need to come to terms that we never have perfect information,
but you have to make a decision and move forward anyway.

Next time someone tells you: “It depends”.
Ask them: “Depends on what?”

Then give them what they need and push them towards giving you a clear action driven answer.
