What Mentors Do

You would be lucky if you have a mentor guiding you. For me, I like listen to my friends, and my friends are kind of my mentors.

According to the book, The Second Mountain(Chapter 11, What Mentors Do):
1. Good mentors coach you through the various decisions of life, such as where to go to graduate school or what jobs to take. Good mentors teach you the tacit wisdom embedded in any craft.

2. Mentors will teach you what excellence looks like.

3. Mentors also teach how to deal with error.

4. Mentors teach how to embrace the struggle -- that the struggle is the good part.

5. The last thing a mentor does, of course, is send you out into the world and, in some sense, cut you off.

What do you think, my friends? Do you have a mentor in your life? I heard someone felt hurt when the mentor sent you out in the world. But this is very necessary for you to grow, right?
