It’s Monday, and as we move headlong into this final week of April, a few bits to ponder …
The great Albert Einstein once said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
That quote, in my opinion, directly encourages trying new and/or different things. You don’t have to alter yourself and your ways completely, but understand that eventually you need to do things a bit different, if the things you are doing aren’t giving you the results you think you should have.
Similarly, it’s well known that persistence is the most common trait characterizing most things labeled a “SUCCESS”. Sometimes doing the same thing repeatedly when it hasn’t worked the first 100 times, is most certainly foolish. Sometimes it is also shrewd. Wisdom consists, in part, of knowing the difference.
Flexibility is a virtue. But in most matters, flexibility only rears its head when persistence has already been given a fair shake.
While it is good to keep all this information in the front of your mind, you need to remember that ultimately you only have control over yourself and your actions.
While it is vital to remain optimistic, the true reality is that you cannot change the course of a 🚢 cruise ship with a single wooden ore.
Keep striving for the best, remain optimistic and have a great week!
