The other day, I attended a family function. Some young boy had become a man and as usual that was an occasion for us to drink and make merry.
One of my cousins called me to the side and said, “cousin, I need you to talk to my son. I need you to mentor him and give him advice.” This stunned me and I asked her, “what advice should I give him? On what subject?”
She said, “you have achieved great career success and I think you are the right person to talk to him.”
As flattering as these requests often are, I was somewhat tickled because how I wish they knew that sometimes I am not even sure which way my career is going.
