This Is Why You Don’t Have a Mentor

This Is Why You Don’t Have a Mentor

http://99u.com/articles/36393/how-to-find-a-mentor

“There is an old Zen kōan about an aspiring swordsman who approaches a master.

“How long would it take me to become great under you?” he asks?“10 years,” the master swordsman replies.

“I don’t have that long,” says the student. “I want to be good soon. What if I worked very hard and dedicated myself completely to the task?”

“Ok, 30 years,” he says back.

“But that’s even longer,” the student says with some perplexity. “I am telling you I am in a hurry.”

And so the master replies, “Precisely, students in a hurry end up taking even longer to learn what is right in front of them.”

“1. Mentorship is something you do, not something you get.

Mentorship, like all relationships, is a process, not an accomplishment.

2. Give as much as you get.

3. Keep your problems at home.

Your personal life is irrelevant.”

The Business Idea

Money – or Lack Thereof

Grabbing Opportunities

Continuous Innovation

Handling People Problems with Compassion

When Things Go Wrong

It’s a Life Sentence

“It seems that being an entrepreneur is a handicap as far as most businesses are concerned.Research has shown that not only are established businesses less likely to hire entrepreneurs than other people, but when they do hire entrepreneurs, they pay them less than others in similar positions. Since many job adverts indicate that the employer is looking for “entrepreneurial self-starters”, this is particularly ironic. But, it seems companies are keener to hire people who call themselves entrepreneurial rather than actual entrepreneurs.”
