Welcome to Day 26 of MyJobMag 30 Day Work Challenge. The 30 Day Work Challenge is designed to help you get your footing solid either you are starting a new job or as a new manager. You can tweet at us @myjobmag to let us know how you are doing or if you have any questions.
So ready for today’s challenge?
“If I have achieved so much, it is because I stood on the shoulders of giants”.
There are two ways to get ahead in life. You can either learn from your own experience or rather learn from the experiences of others and avoid making the mistakes they made.
That is why mentorship is important.
The major mistake people make when it comes to picking a mentor is picking the same mentor for everything, and this will not help you get the much-desired result very fast. Personally, it is a no-no. You see, someone can be very good and have huge experience with money but when it comes to health issues, have zero knowledge.
Rather, what you should be doing is looking at people who can mentor you based on what area of your life you want to improve. You can have a mentor in the office, you can have a career mentor, you can have a financial mentor.
Think of the area where you want to improve and seek out a mentor that can work with you to help you.
Another thing you should also be doing is to find someone who you can mentor. Also, being a mentor to someone gives you a sense of contributing back to society and also helping other people achieve their own goals.
Now that is all for today’s challenge. Join us on LinkedIn and let us know how you are faring.
