When you keep something on a list be wary of leaving it too large. ‘Write strategy’, ‘college plans for Paul’ can seem too impenetrable to the busy mind to be tackled. They get ignored and frighteningly eventually become invisible. So break them down again and again and again until those tough tasks-however attractive they might be-become brain and time friendly.
Instead of focusing on what you don’t have—a one-on-one, traditional mentoring relationship—focus on what you do have: more opportunities than ever before in history to learn and grow. If you simply expand your definition, you will find there are mentoring opportunities everywhere.
