"That could be a form of mentoring but, if you want to get technical, it's more of a form of teaching.  Mentoring is more about advising than teaching. They often happen simultaneously (whether it's intended or not) but that's…"

"You'd have to define spiritual direction in order for me to respond.  Anyway, I assumed that providing someone with spiritual direction can be a form of mentoring but it isn't necessarily mentoring by default. "

"It depends. A role model isn't necessarily a mentor. And a mentor is rarely perfect at everything and thus can't mentor you about everything. "

Lessons From Odin

I have a question regarding something the Author wrote in this piece the passage I have a comment on is this one "When it comes to wisdom, hopefully you don’t have to lose an eye, but certainly you should be willing to place time, energy, attention, and even money on the altar of your goal.

"Do you build policies for the 1 out of 100,000 or 1 out of 1,000,000? You can empathize while still realizing that a given situation may not in any way represent the normal state of affairs. "
