"We are so immersed in our technology that we don't pay any attention to the people around us." – Robert Greene

In 2019, TCP's Milena Z. Fisher visited Robert Greene, the author of many international bestsellers The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, The 33 Strategies of War, The 50th Law, Mastery, The Laws of Human Nature, etc. to have a conversation about his views on creativity. You can read Milena's subsequent article A Voice Of Wisdom In Creativity Quarrel: "Mastery" by Robert Greene in which she summarizes why mastery is such an essential read for anyone interested in creativity.

In this clip, Greene talks about how technological distractions and other intrusions lower our social interest and engagement with the world. He points out that for a creative person, the renewed focus on our surroundings is an important factor in understanding reality.
