"It is the height of stupidity to believe that in the course of your short life, your few decades of consciousness, you can somehow rewire the configurations of your brain... time will mercilessly expose your weakness and impatience." ~Robert Greene
On this Mind Bullet Monday we revisit a topic that can't be addressed enough: Impatience. In short, there are no shortcuts to greatness.
Robert Greene's fascinating work, Mastery, offers a brutal take on the subject: Essentially, he says, it's the "height of stupidity" to be impatient -- to think you can rest on your laurels and not actively pursue mastery.
We're all a little bit impatient — it's ingrained in us to some extent. We of the microwave generations have become wired for instant gratification. But we cannot translate this impatience and reliance on any shortcuts to reach true mastery -- success.
Listen in to hear a fascinating angle on impatience, and how to actually embrace the process of reaching true mastery and following the process -- for as long as it takes.
