The word "mastery" conjures up images of violin virtuosi like Joshua Bell, but Robert Greene, author of Mastery and teacher of the Big Think Mentor workshop "How to Achieve Mastery" convincingly demonstrates that mastery is a process that humans have been refining for centuries. By breaking down the steps involved in achieving mastery in your life's work, whatever that may be, Greene demystifies the process and shows that it is as relevant and achievable today as it was in the time of Mozart.
Robert Greene, Big Think editor Jason Gots, and members of our Big Think Mentor community met on 8/7 in a Google Hangout On-Air to discuss proven strategies for identifying and mastering your life's work.
