My Interview With Entrepreneur and Triathlete, Mitch Thrower
You can turn any job situation into an incredible opportunity by interviewing everyone who works there. That's the advice that entrepreneur and change optimist, Mitch Thrower, author of Give Me 10 Seconds and I'll Change Your Life, frequently gives college students when they express their biggest fear—getting stuck in a cubicle, like in the world of the hit TV show, The Office.
"People forget that the diamond mines of information exist in the people around them," Thrower told me, "so they stop hunting for diamonds." What you should be doing, he says, at any stage of life is having coffee or lunch with everyone in your company. Ask them things like
What have you learned here? and What do you love in life?
Then listen and learn from their unique perspectives and experiences.
