Combating the pernicious myth of the naturally-talented genius who comes out of nowhere with the world-changing idea, he shows how an intense apprenticeship is necessary for the deep insights these masters produce - even though this ap.

What you are gaining from this stage is not only knowledge but also character. Greene writes in an authoritative, even apodictic style, as though he really does see himself as a latter-day Machiavelli or Sun Tzu. If you find documents that should not be here please report them.

Even so saying, one of the greatest things about being human is the ability to continue to evolve, to learn all throughout our lives.

The first move is the most important: follow a career route that is matched to your inclinations and interests.
Such casting off is easier said than done. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other infamous strategists.

Myss's point of departure is the spirit: she sees human life as fundamentally a spiritual journey, and whatever careers or tasks we might undertake must be part of that spiritual journey, if we are to find them fulfilling. It struck me as being a manual for psychopaths: handsome, well laid out, well thought out--and chilling. This book has helped me to see setbacks and challenges in a different light - often, they are blessings in disguise. The reader of the abridged Power and Seduction books was too smarmy and took away the credibility of the text. Greene defines mastery as a heightened form of power and intelligence which any of us can attain, and which almost all of us experience from time to time under suitable conditions, such as the urgent need to solve a problem or to meet a deadline.

Still, the book is targeted at those who can tolerate seeing life as a stage, and most people would prefer their own version of reality. We all are searching for power of some type. The book is more diffuse, more abstract, and altogether, more difficult to get a good hold of. I then ask these people, of their goals, how many they would say they accomplish in a year or month.
