YOU CAN SET GOALS
There are activities you are not good at, or don’t know about. Outsourcing those, focusing on your strengths, can accelerate your progress. But you can’t do it alone, a mentor or coach can help.
Mentors can be categorised as role model or sage. The role model is someone to emulate, to take on behavioural and character traits of. The sage is one with wisdom and information to teach you how to do things.
-Sets a bar for performance
-Provides advice, bounces ideas
-Shares your progress, helps plan actions
-Accelerates your development, ensures you don’t have to make every mistake yourself
-Can open doors and introduce you to useful people
-Has done what you are trying to do or has reached similar goals
-Guides you to develop your own solutions
-Helps keep you motivated, on track and accountable
Your mentors change as you learn and develop and as your goals change, just as you moved between teachers at school. Build a network of trusted collaborators to provide mentorship.
Branson, Buffet, and Zuckerberg, premiers and presidents, actors and astronauts all had mentors. Find ones that can add value to different aspects of your life or your business.
