While reading An Unorthodox Guide to Mentoring I laughed out loud
“My search for mentors came to an end when I got to spend a day with a man still considered a mentor to thousands. After a discussion that was so confusing I couldn’t follow a word he said, a photographer came to take our picture. I was told to sit at the great man’s feet, and he stood behind me. Waiting for the camera to go off, he farted. Right in my ear. You take revelations where you can get them. That moment summed up for me the true value of mentors. ”
I’ve long thought that you must be your own mentor.
