fighting the lack of good ideas

never outshine the master – law 1 – #48laws by robert greene

Law 1

Always make those above you feel comfortably superior. In your desire to please or impress them, do not go too far in displaying your talents or you might accomplish the opposite – inspire fear and insecurity. Make your mission appear more brilliant than they are and you will attain the heights of power. –Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power (review)

Matthew 10:25a

It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master.
