In a previous post, I asked if you could receive one lesson from an expert in anything at all, what would that activity be, and who is your expert of choice. Today, I want to expand that question and ask what your ideal internship would be.
Let’s get the magic wand out again to make this more fun. This internship will last one year and you don’t have to uproot your family and move (though you can if you choose). The internship is paid and you’ll be making as much as you do right now. Any current perks you get in addition to your pay will also be matched, so you’re not giving up a single dollar. Lastly, this wouldn’t be a typical internship. You’d be working closely with your choice on meaningful projects instead of running for coffee and picking up dry-cleaning. A VERY magic wand.
With all of the above as a given, what one person would you choose to work closely with over the course of the next year? Reply in the comments section below with your ideal internship.
Several people came to mind immediately for me, but I ruled them out for various reasons.
After eliminating all of these people, I settled on Ken Tremendous, aka Michael Schur. He’s a writer, a Red Sox fan, and he brings the funny on a regular basis. He’s also producing the best work of his career right now with NBC’s, the Good Place. The lessons that could be learned by anyone looking over his shoulder during the next twelve months would be – please excuse me – tremendous.
