I guess I have a unique opportunity as a young guy to present things that older guys may have forgotten. I know I'm overlooking it but I'm flattered my boss thought of me to be a mentor and don't want to screw this up. What often goes overlooked in terms of being a mentor for younger engineers?

edit: The submit title messed up the title formatting. Really weird.
