In this very special episode of The Lifestyle Architects, I'm super excited to have international best selling author Robert Greene on the show, to talk more about his book Mastery, how to master anything and achieve greatness in business and life.
Robert Greene is an American author and speaker known for his books on strategy, power and seduction. He has written four international bestsellers: The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, The 33 Strategies of War, The 50th Law. Robert's books has influenced me a lot personally, and I'm grateful that he was willing to sit down with me for over an hour to discuss his latest book, Mastery.
His highly anticipated fifth book, Mastery, examines the lives of great historical figures such as Charles Darwin, Mozart, Paul Graham, and Henry Ford and distills the traits and universal ingredients that made them masters. In addition to having a strong following within the business world and a deep following in Washington, DC, Greene’s books are hailed by everyone from war historians to the biggest musicians in the industry (including Jay-Z and 50 cent.)
In this interview, Robert Greene talks about his book Mastery, and what the secrets are to master and learn any skill, and achieve greatness in business and life.
