We’re all familiar with the stereotyping of Millennials. Like my own once-denigrated Generation X, “these kids today” are lazy and entitled, right?
From my experience with the young people I know and work with, I’m not buying it. And even if there’s some truth to the generalization, a guy like Ryan Holiday blows that perception right out of the water.
This college dropout has accomplished more before the age of 30 than most people accomplish in their entire lives. Ryan is the author of four books, runs his own PR agency, is Editor-at-Large of the New York Observer’s technology and business section, was a marketing executive at American Apparel, and continues to advise bestselling authors including Tucker Max, Robert Greene, Tim Ferriss, and Tony Robbins.
I don’t know about you, but I may need a nap just from typing all that.
Today’s conversation focuses on the subject matter of Holiday’s last two books, The Obstacle is the Way and Ego is the Enemy. Although not your typical business books, the timeless lessons these two volumes contain are some of the most valuable any unemployable type must learn.
