How can being a mentor and/or finding a mentor help us through COVID, reinvention and transformation process? Is it ever too late in life to find a mentor?
– Jack S.
I have had mentors in my life. Without them, I would not be who I am today. I have been pleased to be mentored and inspired by fDr. W. Edwards Deming, Carolyn Conger, Marianne Woodman, Nelson Broms, Marshall Thurber, Frances Hesselbein, Harry R. Moody—and others.
Ever too late?
I was in my late 40s when I met Dr. W. Edwards Deming. I am now 76 and am being mentored by someone who is 59, 102, and 104. So it is never ever too late to be mentored and be a mentor.
We are in a dark period, and we do not know how to move through this as a culture. This makes it even more imperative if you are or want to be a trailblazer to have a mentor and not just any mentor. Look for someone who is relevant specifically to who you are and what you want to be.
In every decade of life, a mentor can improve our lives. You are never too old or too young to have one—or be one even!
