One of my mentors is a senior vice president of a giant company in the Philippines.
He gave me his personal email address.
I asked for and received his advice dozens of times but only ended up emailing him once.
I also only met him a few times.
Whenever I’m stuck with a problem and need help, I take the time to write a good description of my problem.
I do my best to include all the important details so they have context of my situation.
I write down my questions on the email.
I write down the different outcomes that I want to happen.
When my email gets to a full page, I pare down the email and remove the repetitive words.
Then I leave the email in my drafts.
The next day, I try to imagine what they’ll tell me.
Then I go back and update the email further.
I take as many steps as I can in writing the email want to make sure that the message is clear.
I also try to judge my message based on what I know about my mentor’s usual answers and personal philosophy.
I repeat this process three or more times.
Eventually, the answer becomes clear for me and I realize I no longer neeed to bother for them with my question.
I usually end up thanking them for inspiring me.
Sometimes I include the shortest version of the dilemma, what I think their advice is, what I did and how it turned out.
Then I thank them for the help and their support.
Thank you for reading this far and thank you for your attention.
If you made it this far, you should introduce yourself.
I am praying for your success. God bless!
