Out of Place

This is a still from Menschen am Sonntag, a film released in 1930.

People in historical photographs and movies can feel very distant and foreign, but you would not think twice if you saw this woman around town. 84 years and she does not seem out of place or time.

Menteed

We maintain a Mentoring wiki page at work. If you want to mentor others, add your name to the list. If you need a mentor, ping someone on the list.

I sought a mentor through this setup but it didn't really stick. We chatted and identified some things I should work on, mostly around building self-improvement into my schedule. But like all those self-improvement projects that are never a priority, keeping up with a mentor was just one more thing for the backburner.

I don't really want a mentor right now. I want peers. I want a group of folks who are struggling and sharing and lifting each other up. I'd like it to be coworkers but it doesn't have to be. But forming connections is hard.
