The Canvas Strategy

Good learning/leading prompts from Ryan Holiday, The Canvas Strategy:

  • Begin with the idea that you are the least important person in the room — until you change that with results.
  • Help yourself by helping others.
  • Say little, do much.
  • Be lesser, do more.
  • If you want great mentors, you have to become a great mentee.
  • Be glad when others get the credit, that was your aim after all.
  • Find what nobody else has done and do it.
  • The person who clears the path (anteambulo) ultimately controls its direction, just as the canvas shapes the painting.
