That’s a question worth thinking about. We stick to things when we have a powerful reason for doing them. I took a few days off from blogging because I felt like I had veered off my path. I spent the days meditating and reading books that I normally wouldn’t read. I helped a friend send off an electronic funding proposal, and spent time with another friend who was in town for only three days. I let go of my obsession to write and schedule posts for The Invisible Mentor blog.
While doing things other than blogging, here are some questions that came to me:
- In the absence of traditional mentors how can you use the wisdom of others to mentor yourself?
- When you need guidance and there is no one to guide you, how do you proceed? How do you find the kind of information that you need to guide and mentor yourself?
- What skills are needed today, and how can you learn those skills from others?
- Who are people who have been through major transformations? How did it shape them? And how can their experiences help you?
- How can information be more effectively presented so others can use it to mentor themselves?
The purpose of The Invisible Mentor Blog is to help you mentor yourself. That’s why I do what I do, I just have to find a way to do it much better. Had I not taken a mental break from blogging, I would not have seen that I needed to do what I do better. Life is about evolving and stepping into the person you were meant to be. It’s not always an easy task, but it is one worth doing. When was the last time you took the time to think about why you do the things you do. What thoughts would you like to share?
