Z equals Wednesday January 3, 2007, 2 comments

If A equals success, then the formula is A equals X plus Y plus Z. X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.”

– Albert Einstein

Forget relativity, or the conservation of mass and energy. Forget atomic theory, or the thousands of students. This is why Einstein ws a genius.

His blunt recipe for success is so true, even today. Einstein looked at things the way they were. Z is my favorite, and is the one thing most people haven’t developed.

Too true Pierre. Too true.

I’ve never had role models in my life, but I find myself admiring Einstein and Picasso more and more every day.

Being able to see, instead of just looking, that’s the connection.

Commenting has ended for this post, but I'd still love to hear from you.

It is typical of the West to see the surface of a problem, and then rush headlong to proselytize the masses via a marketing campaign based on a poorly conceived, barely researched solution.”
