Well done. This article was written with the immense wisdom and experience you have, tempered with wit and humor.
Specifically, I took away important truths from:
• your 5-years-ahead-of-you rule for selecting a mentor
• the fact that specific questions are so important (as opposed to, "How can I be successful?")
• your advice that your mentor doesn't have to be in the same industry as you, because some truths are universal
Thanks for sharing so generously.
