Description

We all have our own mastery endeavors in our lives and I look forward to you using these tools to find and build yours and inspire others to find theirs. Instead of feeling complacent about what you know, you must expand your knowledge to related fields, giving your mind fuel to make new associations between different ideas.

And at the root of this power is a simple process that leads to mastery— one that is accessible to all of us. It is a book that challenges the contemporary American ideal of the superiority of only climactic moments, that challenges instant gratification, and reveals a deeper, older, and more essential truth about life. For the angel’s face, he experimented with his paints and mixed a new blend that gave it a kind of soft radiance that expressed the angel’s sublime mood. When it comes to mastery, it is not a question of should I master something, but instead, what should I master? The book is structured well, first telling you what Mastery is, then describing the tools needed to achieve it, and then describing the hindrances to achieving it.By analyzing the lives of such past masters as Charles Darwin, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and Leonard da Vinci, as well as by interviewing nine contemporary masters, including tech guru Paul Graham and animal rights advocate Temple Grandin, Greene debunks our culture’s many myths about genius and distills the wisdom of the ages to reveal the secret to greatness. In addition to having a strong following within the business world and a deep following in Washington, DC, these books are also being hailed by everyone from war historians to some of the heaviest hitters in the rap world (including Jay-Z and 50 Cent).

With this seminal text as a guide, readers will learn how to unlock the passion within and become masters.Keep expanding your horizons: Mingle with as many different people and ideas as possible, they’ll all contribute to enhancing your learning. In this new age, those who follow a rigid, singular path in their youth often find themselves in a career dead end in their forties, or overwhelmed with boredom. His sentences do not read like the simple, short, insignificant sentences common to many "self-help" books. Having more than one mentor has side benefits, giving you several connections and important allies to rely upon later on. Rarely is Greene blunt about the specific issues facing our age, but parsing his implications can be its own adventure—is he speaking of hipsters in describing the ironic attitude?

Since I read this more for knowledge than for practice, I hope to reread this soon with application in mind and will review my ratings then. You don’t want to start with something too lofty, too ambitious— you need to make a living and establish some confidence. In 2001, Robert released his second book, The Art of Seduction, which is more than a sequel to The 48 Laws; it is both a handbook on how to wield the ultimate form of power, and a detailed look at the greatest seducers in history. There he met Joost Elffers, the New York book packager and discussed with him his idea for a book on power and manipulation, the ultimate modern version of Machiavelli's The Prince.This book, Mastery by Robert Green wants to teach you how to overcome one of the biggest obstacles we face. Too often we make a separation in our lives— there is work and there is life outside work, where we find real pleasure and fulfillment. But so is some cautious self-examination, for there's perhaps no more dangerous time for any society that its moment of greatest triumph.
