Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist. He developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Einstein’s work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science… He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his “services to theoretical physics”, in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory.

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.
— Albert Einstein
Is value more important than success? And what is the difference?
Value denotes meaning — a deeper heartfelt quality. When you have value, you give special importance to your customers and people you work with.
Whereas, successful tends to equate with financial gain or meeting particular goals — which, unfortunately, can be obtained without having value.
Business success depends greatly on your ability to deal with and meet the needs of your customers. And how to you meet the needs of your customers? By giving them value when they buy your products and services.
Which would you rather be: Valuable or Successful??
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
~ Albert Einstein
Very interesting quote — especially coming from one of the most intelligent men of the 20th century.
So, if I understand him correctly, intelligent people have a vivid imagination. I can see that new ideas come easily to these people whereas, the rest of us, may not be able to see beyond our own circumstances. Or better put, if you are imaginative, you see beyond any circumstances and look for the good!
I would equate this to ‘thinking outside the box’. It is not difficult to gain knowledge if you want. But to exercise your imagination is truly a gift beyond any knowledge we can obtain.
Good words to live by when we decide to change the path we are on and look for new opportunities.
What do you think?
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
— Albert Einstein
If we create a problem in one mindset, how are we going to ever solve it if we are in same mindset?
This sounds like the perfect example of thinking outside the box. Sitting back from our typically thinking to look at a problem can open all kinds of opportunities for new solutions to come to mind.
Not always easy, but, really, the only way to effectively solve problems.
