“It’s not that I am so smart, it’s that I stay with problems longer.” – Albert Einstein
We can’t give up on difficult tasks. It’s not a good model, long term, to work around things that can ultimately be fixed. To truly move forward you have to eliminate what is unnecessary. That means fixing small problems, tightening up work flow, investing in a process, and putting aside distractions. I love this quote from Einstein because it highlights something we all struggle with. You don’t have to be the most talented, most intelligent, or most physically gifted to be the best. You just have to work harder and smarter than the next guy.
Have a great day,
