What is Big Picture of gaining Mastery

Brett McKay: So, Mastery is accessible to everybody. It’s democratic, it’s accessible to all. Not everyone is going to reach it, because not everyone is going to the steps, but let’s talk about kind of overarching steps, what’s the big picture of gaining Mastery, what’s this process that you discover with all these individuals?

Robert Greene: Well, the process is actually relatively simple, but it’s going to take years to get there and it starts with what I already laid out and it’s the most important step, if you don’t take this first step there is no Mastery that will come and it has been very clear about what makes you different, what excites you in the world and creating a career path at an early age or even later it happens people later in life, that even happened to me later in life. Carving a career path that meshes with something deeply personal, something you want to do, something you want to accomplish, from there you enter an apprenticeship phase, generally its equivalent to your twenties, but it can, you know, blend into later ages depends or can start earlier and it’s a five to ten year process, it’s been demonstrated in all kinds of interesting studies, it was sort of encapsulated in the middle ages in an actual apprenticeship phase that young men usually would go through generally around seven years and it basically means the period in which you learned the skills, the rules of the game and everything else that is involved in selling in a particular craft or profession and I explain a great depth, the kind of attitude and mindset that a real master has in this apprenticeship phase. We all go through apprenticeship phase, but some people maximize if they really exploit it. They learn more deeply, they cumulate a high number of skills. They learn how to fit in and work in a group environment, etcetera, etcetera so, there is good apprenticeship and there is a bad apprenticeship and I want to show you how to go through the right one. As part of that apprenticeship you want to attach yourself to a mentor if possible, and I mean have a chapter on that subject the reason I go into that is, it’s the one thing that will help you shorten the process if we are talking about ten to twenty thousand hours, ten to twenty years of working at something, having a person there who can watch you in real-time and say this is what you are good at, this is what you are bad out, these are the mistakes I made so how to avoid them, it’s just absolutely invaluable and I demonstrate in the book how the human brain is designed from the learning in that kind of particular relationship. As part of the apprenticeship I also talk about social intelligence learning how to work with other people it’s not just being technically profession in your field and having a lot of knowledge. We are self-animals and you have how to learn, how to work with people. Those are the three components of that apprenticeship phase I go into very, very detail in that and at a certain point in phase you start moving towards the next phase. it’s kind of a transitional thing where you begin to experiment with your knowledge that you have gained and become a little more creative with it entering what I call the creative active phase, which could be anywhere from after ten years of this apprenticeship or little bit less and in that phase you start taking the knowledge you be cumulated and experimenting with the trying things out starting your own project and bringing that individual, that unique quality that you have in the play, which was sort of like dormant to a new apprenticeship phase and I give many examples and stories of how people have used, have maximized this phase because there is a lot of dangerous, a lot of people never become creative or experimental of what they have learned, they just become conservative with it so, I go into detail about what I call creative strategies and if you stick with this long enough if you retain that kind of youthful, playful attitude towards where you are studying, but you remained disciplined after enough time you enter the final phase of Mastery where you have this intuitive feel and I describe in detail where that comes from, why it happen and how it feels, so that’s pretty much the overview of the process that I describe.
