“If I have seen further than others, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” - Isaac Newton
Sir Isaac Newton got it right. Mentors help do the invaluable work of extending vision and enabling proteges to attain greater heights. In short, mentors provide undeniable counsel and resources that are not necessarily or readily available or accessible. If you’ve been alive for long, you know this reality all too well — you can not ‘do,’ ‘go’ or ‘be’ all you can be all by yourself. You will eventually need people and people will undoubtedly need you.
