If you impress people the first few months it should be because of your desire to learn, not because of your desire to rise to the top before you are ready.” - Robert Greene, Mastery

This sentence from Mastery is something I overlooked completely.

During an apprenticeship [1] individuals should impress their mentors by being intensely curious, rather than by showing ambition or desire.


[1] Apprenticeships in this context can refer to internships, early stage roles, or any environment involving mentorship.
