The man who inspired Ray Charles
Ray Charles talks about his mentor:
"From time to time, I'd start hittin' the keys with my whole fists and finally he would say to me, "Look kid, you don't hit the keys with your whole fist like this (demonstrates), if you like music so much," and he knew how much I liked music because I'd stop everything I was doing and listen to him. So he started to teach me how to play little melodies with one finger. And, of course, I realize today that he could've said, "Kid, get away from me, can't you see I'm practicing?"
But he didn't. He took the time. Somehow he knew in his heart, this kid loves music so much, I'm going to do whatever I can to help him learn how to play."
- People are living longer, therefore they are working longer years
- An oversaturated job market leaves no space for young professionals, companionship and learning curves.
- Youngsters know how to develop projects in group, however they are all in the same phase when it comes to applied technical knowledge.
- To find a mentor who is willing to share and inspire a young professional in their workplace is a very hard job, specially in a increasing digital competitive market
