A couple of years ago, a young man approached me after church to ask if I would mentor him. He is a rising star in a massive company, many years ahead of where he expected to be in his mid-20s, already identified as one of his company’s future leaders.
He told me, “My success is way ahead of my systems. If I don’t learn how to cope with all the things I need to do at work and everywhere else in life, I’m going to crash and burn.”
We began to meet for lunch every few weeks to address issues of productivity.
