For as long as I can remember, I have avoided reading the 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene, partly because the book was deemed as a hand book for con men and a ruthless and instructive book. (and I mean, no one wants to be a con man, and a ruthless one at that, right?)
Nonetheless the holidays are coming, and as you know, the holidays make us mellow and more accommodative, and just like that I picked the one book that has remained ignored in my shelf for decades and started reading.
and just like that I have been hooked. I could see how the laws appealed to the nature of my existence and I begun to understanding a few things
- Why the Boss was constantly on a roll to belittle me any chance he got
- Why the respect from the peers was a bit hard to come by
- Why everyone seemed to know what my plans were in the office, and they were quick to dive in before I did and get the corner office
- And why the friend’s I had, suddenly had a change in attitude when I was appointed in charge of them.
I bet you were hoping to get all 48 laws in the post, but what fun would that be? You need to walk to the store and grab this book, because 2017 is around the corner and maybe, just maybe, there are some laws worth adopting on your end, that could possible lead for a better 2017 for you? In the workplace, at home and social circles?
yup that is what I thought!
Have you read the book? Laws you agree with? Disagree with? Laws, you have applied and have worked for you? against you?
