Thursday Reading Links #69

This article, The Mentor Myth, by Joanna Goddard is enlightening. For those of us that aren’t privileged enough to have mentors, Joanna makes the case that you can have mentors from afar. One of her mentors is Michelle Obama. I wish I had thought of this idea decades ago. I’m making a list of my mentors from afar tonight. Michelle Obama is at the top of the list.

I’ve decided to keep a Commonplace Book. I like the idea of it because it’s a more organized system than what I have going on right now: post-it notes, my phone notes app, and several documents where I type or transfer in my various thoughts and ideas, etc. I’m excited to give this new system a try.

xoxo, Jane
