Ah, the modern masterpiece of mentorship! In a world filled with endless scrolls and swipe-lefts, young people have unlocked a new level of mastery – the art of having mentors, but not using them. It’s like having a Ferrari parked in the garage, but opting to ride a bicycle instead. For real?!
Read carefully, you may discover where you stored your mentors.
”The Trophy Mentors”
Picture this: a collection of mentors’ contact details stored meticulously in your phone. You’ve amassed them like rare Pokémon cards, only to let them hibernate in your digital habitat. These mentors must be thrilled to see their numbers sparkle in your contacts, wondering, “Will today be the day they finally reach out?!”
”The Social Media Whisperers”
Oh, the elegance of following mentors on social media, meticulously adding them to your digital zoo. But hold on, are you actively engaging? No! Why leave witty comments or heartwarming emoji stories when you can marvel at their curated content from the safety of the sidelines? Who needs interaction when you can spectate, right?
”The Mentor Name Drop”
In the realm of conversations, you’re the maestro of name-dropping mentors. As friends gather around, you unleash tales of your esteemed advisory council. “Oh, you know, my mentor once said…” they say, basking in the borrowed glory. Little do they know that your mentorship interactions are about as rare as a solar eclipse.
”The Mythical Lunch Invite”
Behold, the lunch invite! The elusive act of acquiring a mentor’s number with grand plans of inviting them for lunch. Except, the lunch date joins the ranks of unicorns and leprechaun gold – an alluring idea that rarely materializes. The mentor sits by the phone, daydreaming of the mystical lunch that is never served.
Congratulations, you’ve achieved the unicorn of mentorship: having mentors, but not using them. Your mentors admire your expertise in the fine art of collecting dust on wisdom. You’re the curator of a museum that exists solely in your mind – a grand showcase of “what ifs” and “could’ve been.”
And so, dear reader, consider a twist in your mentorship journey as you close this funny guide. Embrace the unconventional notion of reaching out, engaging, and learning from these wondrous beings. Let the unicorn roam free, and who knows, you might find that the ride on the mentorship Ferris wheel is far more exhilarating than sticking to the bicycle! 🦄🎡🤣
