Mentor Monday - Episode 1 : Progression
I have quite a number of people (mentors) whom I seek wisdom and guidance from at Intervals. For the next 9 weeks, I would share some key lessons I have learnt from these amazing people on Mondays.
I remember one day sharing with my mentor Yemi Sanni about how I just had a great year in business and was wondering if I could do it again.
He sat me down and told me a very short story that has forever changed my perspective.
He said "When I was in Primary 2, I would walk past the Primary 4 class and see the maths they were solving on the board. It would look so difficult and I would wonder how I would manage to pass maths when I get to Primary 4 but then I got to Primary 4 and not only did I understand the maths at that level, I was topping the class"
The lesson sank in clearly. Some things in life are about progression. Doing stage 1 well helps you succeed at stage 2.
This advice has been one I constantly remember and YES, I had another fantastic year. No stopping.
Don't worry too much about the future focus on doing your best today and the future would arrive in grand style.
