You don’t want to start with something too lofty, too ambitious— you need to make a living and establish some confidence. If you work on yourself first, as Faraday did, developing a solid work ethic and organizational skills, eventually the right teacher will appear in your life. He has an elegant writing style, like that of one accustomed to long periods of silence and thinking.

He was also a former United States Army Air Corps pilot, and held a fifth degree black belt in aikido. His wisdom is captured in this small book for anyone who is willing to read and follow him as a guide. For a book treating 'masters' as a scarcity in our population, now made all the rarer by ironic attitudes towards skill in a technological age, Greene introduces his book with the guarantee that every reader can find their inside talents and master them. Perhaps it could be that we talk too much, or are too honest in our criticisms of people, or take offense too easily when others do not respond positively to our ideas. But genius, no matter how bright, will come to naught or swiftly burn out if you don't choose the master's journey.In the process you will master the necessary skills, discipline your mind, and transform yourself into an independent thinker, prepared for the creative challenges on the way to mastery. But the real juice of life, whether it be sweet or bitter, is to be found not nearly so much in the products of our efforts as in the process of living itself, in how it feels to be alive. Conformism: When people form groups of any type, a kind of organizational mind-set inevitably sets in. Is the repetition of featured stories (you know what I'm talking about if you've read it) such a big deal?

Transfigure their ideas: As you incorporate the lessons of your master, begin to adapt them to yourself. And on television we can watch top athletes, dancers, ice skaters, singers, actors, comics, and pundits, all giving us their best. The book has been a national and international bestseller, and has been translated into 17 languages. In this awareness, the man or woman on the path of mastery sometimes makes a conscious decision to do just that. This is such a great opportunity to have a closer look at what made the likes of Mozart, da Vinci and others into forces of nature that they were in their time and beyond.

Natural Powers: Give yourself open-ended time and focus, develop a wide understanding of your field, never settle into complacency, and embrace slowness as a virtue in itself. Emphasizes growing to love the plateaus, the in-betweens, the process, the art of being in the zone, of focusing on the moments rather than the goals. The point is, when things aren't going well on your path of mastery, don't forget to check out the rest of your life. Man has at various times been defined as a building animal, a working animal, and a fighting animal, but all of these definitions are incomplete and finally false. 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.
