Before Robert Greene wrote his bestselling book The 48 Laws of Power, he was “lost”. In the Ted Talk above, he talks about how he hopped from one job to another until he had 50 jobs. He was 36 years old already and he hadn’t “settled into anything”.
However, these experiences helped him write his book. He noticed how people wanted power and the ways by which they tried to get it. Those observations went into his book. Cool huh?
So should I like go wild and get 50 jobs?
