ii) Long-Term Proposition

Mentoring is regarded more as a long-term proposition and involves covering a wide range of areas, such as career progression; work/life balances, such as family, health, hobbies; strategic objectives, etc. The future is best broken into 3 personal horizons:

i) short-term (now to 2 years), ie the specific job you are working towards

ii) medium-term (2 - 5 years), ie the role that inspires you but is beyond your current expertise and capabilities

iii) long-term (beyond 5 years), ie what you want to be remembered for (life's purpose or one's calling or leaving a legacy)

As horizons 1 and 2 often change, it is best to start by visualizing horizon 3 and working backwards.
