10 Life Lessons From Albert Einstein
As we fast approach the last few days of 2014 I figured it’s a great time to share some wisdom from Albert Einstein himself.
This is the time of year where we get to put the brakes on and slow down a little from our business and work life and spend some time focusing on our family and of course ourselves.
It’s also a great time to focus on what we want most out of 2015 and what we achieved in 2014. We may not have achieved all that we wanted but, if we’re honest, I am sure there’s a lot that we can and should be thankful for.
Let’s focus on those things, not on the things we didn’t quite get done.
Without further ado, here are the 10 Life Lessons From Albert Einstein:
- Follow Your Curiosity: “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”
- Perseverance is Priceless: “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
- Focus on the Present: “Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”
- Imagination is Powerful: “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
- Make Mistakes: “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
- Live in the Moment: “I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”
- Create Value: “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”
- Don’t Be Repetitive: “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
- Knowledge Comes From Experience: “Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”
- Learn the Rules and Then Play Better: “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”
