fighting the lack of good ideas

disdain things you cannot have: ignoring them is the best revenge – law 36 – #48laws by robert greene

Law 36

By acknowledging a petty problem you give it existence and credibility. The more attention you pay an enemy, the stronger you make him; and a small mistake is often made worse and more visible when you try to fix it. It is sometimes best to leave things alone. If there is something you want but cannot have, show contempt for it. The less interest you reveal, the more superior you seem. –Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power (review)
