Practice What You Preach?

We explore an inherent mechanism in giving goal-related advice that may perpetuate our failure to practice what we preach. Giving goal-related advice allows the advisor to experience vicarious goal progress through expectation of recipient follow-through, allowing the advisor to disengage from the goal and act in an advice-inconsistent manner.
