1. “It takes six zeroes to make one look like a million” – Adam Smith (Me)
I wondered about our feelings at work at the family in the community in general. We are all times feeling like zeroes.
Failure is not a pleasant thing. Unless it’s a failure in world domination or humanity eradication, in that case, failure IS a good thing. 🙂
So yeah, we might fail at a test, at partner satisfaction what is also sort of a test, but it doesn’t make us anything, cause it takes six zeroes to make one look like a million.
2. “Minimize the problem, maximize the solution.” – Ilanit Swails
We have many tasks to perform each and every day, we have problems and we always seek for the solution.
If we concentrate only on the problem we limit our view and at times neglect the solution. So we better learn to let it go and allow ourselves see how pieces fall into their places.
3. “I know that I know nothing.” – Socrates
Sometimes people think they know everything and block the possibility to see how the world really came to be how it is today. We can not know everything. The biggest example of it is the history of Physics (the science). People believed the world was flat before Galileo, people did not know how gravity works before Newton. And finally, Einstein with the theory of relativity brought so much into this world that most of us still struggle with comprehension of his ideas. I can’t know everything, but I at least can realize and live with this ultimate fact.
4. “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” – Henry David Thoreau
I think imagination is the key to living happier abundant life. Ability to see more in people and the world than there is making us so much more rich that many great people encouraged out of the box thinking while they were alive.
Creativity is valued higher than the ability to follow orders. Always. A new solution to a problem is an achievement while just solving a problem is little less.
5. “I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma.” – Eartha Kitt
Once again the world is so vast. There is so much to grasp. The sooner you realize we are all just fools within different setups it will be easier and more exciting for you to live.
There is only one kind of ordinary for me and that extraordinary. I like learning new things and with the invention of print and the internet, it has become so much easier.
Thank you for reading. Truly yours Adam Smith.
