The Concise Mastery

First, you resist the temptation to be nice to yourself. You become your own worst critic; you see your work as if through the eyes of others.

You recognize your weaknesses, precisely the elements you are not good at. We live in the world of a sad separation that began some five hundred years ago when art and science split apart. We must constantly ask the questions—how do things work, how do decisions get made, how does the group interact?

By nature, mentors feel emotionally invested in your education. This can be for several reasons: perhaps they like you, or see in you a younger version of themselves, and can relive their own youth through you; perhaps they recognize in you a special talent that will give them pleasure to cultivate; perhaps you have something important to offer them, mostly your youthful energy and willingness to work hard.

You will want as much personal interaction with the mentor as possible. A virtual relationship is never enough. People often err in this process when they choose someone who seems the most knowledgeable, has a charming personality, or has the most stature in the field—all superficial reasons. What immediately struck him was the intensity with which Pacquiao focused on his instructions and how quickly he caught on. He was eminently teachable, and so the progress was more rapid than it had ever been with any other fighter.

Pacquiao seemed to never tire of training or to worry about overdoing it. Roach kept waiting for the inevitable dynamic in which the fighter would begin to tune him out, but this never came.

See a Problem?

This was a boxer he could work harder and harder. Soon, Pacquiao had developed a devastating right hand, and his footwork could match the speed of his hands. By moving past our usual self-absorption, we can learn to focus deeply on others, reading their behavior in the moment, seeing what motivates them, and discerning any possible manipulative tendencies.

Navigating smoothly the social environment, we have more time and energy to focus on learning and acquiring skills. And with many people the wisest thing you can do, is to resolve to make use of those whom you cannot alter. It is not generally acknowledged or discussed, but the personality we project to the world plays a substantial role in our success and in our ascension to mastery.

This ability to endure and even embrace mysteries and uncertainties is what Keats called negative capability. Many of the most interesting and profound discoveries in science occur when the thinker is not concentrating directly on the problem but is about to drift off to sleep, or get on a bus, or hears a joke In moments of great tension and searching, you allow yourself moments of release.

You take walks, engage in activities outside your work Einstein played the violin , or think about something else, no matter how trivial. The hand-brain connection is something deeply wired within us; when we attempt to sketch something we must observe it closely, gaining a feel through our fingers of how to bring it to life. Such practice can help you think in visual terms and free your mind from its constant verbalizations. To Leonardo da Vinci, drawing and thinking were synonymous.

The more experienced, wiser types, such as Ramachandran, are opportunists. Instead of beginning with some broad goal, they go in search of the fact of great yield—a bit of empirical evidence that is strange and does not fit the paradigm, and yet is intriguing.

Your project or the problem you are solving should always be connected to something larger—a bigger question, an overarching idea, an inspiring goal. Whenever your work begins to feel stale, you must return to the larger purpose and goal that impelled you in the first place. What is interesting to note is that many Masters who come to possess this high-level intuitive power seem to become younger in mind and spirit with the passing years—something that should be encouraging to us all.

Empathy plays an enormous role in learning and knowledge. We think of everything going back to a single cause — they did this because of that.

We turn people into cartoons or caricatures, but everybody comes from an extremely unique place in life. If you add in all the variables — they were born in a particular moment in history, in a particular social class with particular parents who have their own weirdness from their own parents and then they meet all of these people who have an effect upon them.

No two people are the same. But that altered. That was sort of the main thing that I discovered.

I wanted to really understand why. So for instance—when it comes to narcissism—we tend to think of narcissists in a particular way. We think of them as people who are in love with themselves or who are just sort of wrapped up in their own world.

Then we have our diagnosis of them. Every single human being is a narcissist by our nature. We cannot help it. And so I wanted to see why that is. I wanted to see what the roots of it are. But the idea of having a self and your relationship to yourself and how that defines you is much more complicated than just the superficial way we label people as narcissists. The Stoics talk about our faculty for reasoning and the importance of logic and appealing to reason and the importance of reason, but obviously the theme of your book is just how irrational and unreasonable people are.

How do you reconcile that? I believe the Stoics express it similarly. The lower self is our animal nature, our primate nature. We descended from chimpanzees. And we tend to always want things to be easier to take the path of least resistance. Generally in life, we are slaves to our emotions. The faculty for reasoning and cognition is a totally separate part of the brain than where we process emotions.

We never really know why we are angry. It comes from some unconscious place and so we have no way of analyzing it. To be rational is an ideal. The world is this place that has existed for millions of years, billions of years. Life goes on. Everything changes and is impermanent , and my emotions have nothing to do with reality.

So you want to be able to have the power to subtract your emotions. To become rational is an effort and an ideal. We tend to think of rational as cogito ergo —I think therefore I am.

But humans who are truly rational are extremely rare. Socrates has this idea that he starts from a position of ignorance. Socrates began from a premise of ignorance.

Well, how many people do you know personally that ever applied that form of rationality, to begin from a premise of ignorance?

In fact, I could be wrong. All of my ideas could be wrong. I need to educate myself in every single instance. The moments of humans being rational are one out of a thousand. One of the things that Marcus Aurelius talks about a lot is understanding the people who drive you crazy. He even talks a lot about when someone does something to you, think about when you have done that to other people.

Your book talks about empathy through similar exercises. Why is that so important? What does it help you do? If I had to say what the primary law of human nature is, the primary law of human nature is to deny that we have human nature, to deny that we are subject to these forces. The truth is we all evolved from the same source, from the same small number of people.

Our brains are basically the same. We are wired in a similar way. We experienced the world, emotionally, the same way that hunter-gatherers experienced the world.

Very little has changed in that sense. So if we all come from the same source, why would it be that only a small number of people are aggressive or are irrational?

We are all the same. The Stoics talk about that.

This is the logos of human nature. The exercise is to see that in other people. We separate ourselves from others. A few weeks ago you had a surprise, what could have very easily been a fatal stroke. And right on the cusp of you putting out this new book. How have you dealt with what must have been frustration and disappointment and fear? The impatience and the frustration are intense.

Why did it happen to me? When it first happened, I was in the hospital, I had a pretty good attitude, I was reacting in a good way. In all my books, the last chapter is the most important. It infects everything that we are. It creates a fear of life. The latent, chronic anxiety is a function of our inability to confront our mortality. We live in a culture that is death denial at the extreme. But the way primitive people dealt with it was to create a religion. And in the past, death was all around you.

You saw all of your family members die. You saw death in the streets.

Robert Greene

You had an awareness of it. We live in extreme denial and when you deny death, you are denying life because the two go together.

Your fear of death keeps us from going beyond it.You had an awareness of it. This is the logos of human nature. 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. But humans who are truly rational are extremely rare. We live in a world of such denial and such bullshit. That makes me so angry. Such practice can help you think in visual terms and free your mind from its constant verbalizations.

Every single human being is a narcissist by our nature.

But most of us now live in a secularized world. For Robert, his direction was writing.
