This is what we talked about on The Invisible Mentor Blog this week: The Change Your Life Book by Bill O’Hanlon, Avicenna, Father of Medicine, and Mark Prasuhn, President, Vantage Media Inc.
Adventures in Learning
The Greek Goddess Athena was born as a full grown adult, sprouting out of the head of her father, Zeus, in full body armour. She is the Goddess of war and strategy, the arts, wisdom and intelligence and also a protectress of the city. Athena had a soft spot for King Odysseus. In Roman mythology, Athena is known as Minerva.
Booked for Mentoring
The Change Your Life Book by Bill O’Hanlon is a short book which can be read in an hour. The book is packed with some great tips, but all of them may not be relevant to your situation. I recommend the book, and here is how you should approach it. Read through the book in one sitting, and place a check mark by any of the 52 shifts that apply to your situation.
Wisdom of Life Profile
Avicenna was a voracious reader and had a brilliant mind. By the time he was 10 years old, he completed the study of language and literature and had memorized the Koran. He then studied Greek logic, astronomy and mathematics (Ptolemy’s Almagest, and Euclid’s Elements) under the tutelage of his father’s friend al-Natili, but soon felt that his knowledge surpassed that of his tutor. At age sixteen, he had mastered contemporary knowledge in natural science, rudimentary metaphysics and medical theory.
Interviews for Mentoring
This week we featured Mark Prasuhn, President, Vantage Media. Prasuhn wishes that he was less risk averse in his life and he recommends that others take risks early on in their career. Here are Part I and Part II of Mark Prasuhn’s interview.
