It just happened to me he could be one. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply What’s the most important thing you’ve learned from him so far? LikeLike Reply To be honest with myself. to be a researcher. It’s difficult to say in one word. I can’t say in one slogan. Just general outlook on life. I guess second mentor could be Nikolai Berdyaev. Third could be Voltaire. It’s just an aesthetic worldview. You know in one sherlock holmes’ book there was a preface with words: Holmes was an aesthete. I thought it was an interesting idea. I am not a Sherlock just want to say. Those guys gave me chance to look at things and at myself at special angle of view. LikeLiked by 1 person This is so powerful.

LikeLiked by 1 person I have multiple mentors. One of them is Elon Musk for the determination he has and also for having the balls to do things other people don’t even wanna try. Another mentor is Jordan Peterson because of how great and specific his speeches are. I just bought his book 12 Rules for Life and I can’t wait to read it. I also try to learn as much as I can from J. K. Rowling because she is one of the top writers out there and since I want to be a writer too, I believe I have things to learn from her. I guess I can find a few more if I search 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person I find mentors in different people for different positive attributes LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That is one of the things I also try to do.

A few were my great teachers when I was in high school a million years ago. But as I gained experience in my career I had the good fortune of having great role models and mentors. One of them was the chairperson for the English department. He is a special soul and taught me so many of life’s valuable lessons. We correspond and talk on the phone every so often. Now in his 90’s he is still going strong and always offers me great advice when I need it. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply He seems to be an amazing person! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes he is.
