I saw this line today, “Well, nobody’s perfect!” -Joe E. Brown (Some Like It Hot). It reminded me of what a Priest said to me once in confession. I was pouring my heart out about what a horrible person I was.

Do you have a mentor right under your nose and don’t recognize it? Step back, take a look around. Who in your world has successfully accomplished what you seek to do?

I don’t try to dominate anyone’s time. I proactively absorb all I can virtually. Sometimes I ultimately get to meet my role models and sometimes they don’t know I exist.
