Key Ideas

Work Hard, But Not for Recognition

Work for the love of the work itself, not for credit of recognition.

Your work should be something that you would like to do for free, and if you take your ego out of the equation and simply focus on good work, you become the pillar of prominence.

Starting Off In A New Field

A few things to keep in mind when starting work in a new field:

  1. We may not be as great or important as we think.
  2. We may need an attitude readjustment.
  3. Most of our knowledge, which may be spanning decades, is now obsolete, and we may need to unlearn it.

Cultivating the Right Relationships

Like a sponge, attach yourself to the people from whom you can learn and subsume your entire identity, ego, and any desire to pursue your own glory.

This gradually helps us learn new ways to solve problems, develop a good reputation and build lasting relationships.

The Powerful Man

A person of authority, power, fame and public standing is robbed of choices. He cannot explore, drift or reinvent himself. His dependence on others and responsibilities stop him from learning and growing, and his life is robbed of any self-discovery.

The powerful man is focused on survival and is a distrusting, fearful man, existing in a golden cage.

Success Is Autonomy

Real autonomy is the freedom to do what you want to do from the movement you get up in the morning until the time you go to bed. It is the freedom to think, to invest, to have an opinion, to spend time on an activity that we want to, and being able to redefine what success means, in our own terms.

An individual who is free to be, and is not tied to rules, obligations, people, followers, free from constraints, is truly rich and successful.
