Being Purposeful In Meeting With A Mentor

Being Purposeful In Meeting With Mentor – Purposeful Living

These posts written by Todd (Amy’s husband) are designed to model a system of purposeful living.  At least once a month, he spends time setting meaningful goals around one of seventeen core priorities.

Correct Priority
Priority #3 – Social Health – Friends–Having A Mentor 

Goal Setting & Reflection Date
Sunday, April 8

Invest in my spiritual, social, and emotional health by meeting once a month with individuals who play a mentoring role in my life.  

Goal Status
In Progress

I am an introvert.  A severe introvert.  And I struggle a great deal in relationships.  I do well with my wife and with my children, but beyond that I don’t do well.  Given the choice between time with people or time to myself, I prefer to be by myself.   

But I have decided this month that this needs to change.  I have no intentions on becoming the life of the party, but there are a few key relationships that need to be shored up in my life.  

Starting with my mentors.      

There are currently two men who play a mentoring role in my life.  And I haven’t met with either of them since December.  That is pathetic.  

By not prioritizing my time to meet with them I believe I am putting my marriage and my family in unnecessary risk.  

On the first Sunday of every month (beginning this month) I will be purposeful about contacting and setting up a time to meet with one of my mentors.  

Towards the end of the year I will provide an update on how successful I have (or haven’t) been in setting up these meetings.  And if I can any insight or wisdom during this time that seems appropriate to share I’ll do that as well.
