Albert Einstein Quotes For You


Mahatma Gandhi with Albert Einstein

Dear Mahatma Gandhi,

How are you? Hope you are fine. This is the first time I am writing a letter to you. I don’t know why I am writing a letter to you.

But for some reason you came in my mind, when I came across some quotes today of Albert Einstein, the celebrated German physicist. Let me share with you some of these quotes of Einstein that I liked and why I liked them.

–> 1. “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
I like this quote as it forces a person to get rid of all complexities in his thought and expression. This ensures that the explanation that is then offered is easily understood. In other words, you can explain in a simple way only, when you understand it best.

–> 2. “The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.”
Just think for a minute sitting quietly somewhere. Isn’t our conditioning and environment mostly about finding answers to two questions: What do I get out of it? When do I get it? It would be nice to see the day when we start placing value on a person not on what he is able to ‘get’ from others, but on what he is able to ‘give’ to others.

–> 3. “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
You know that you have to keep moving ahead and improve yourself in some way or the other regularly. What happens if you don’t improve yourself? Well, then you start getting imbalanced in life, by disappointment, anger, irritation, frustration and all the other negative emotions. Life and its living pressures will make you fall down, if you are not pedaling your cycle of life.

–> 4. “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”
You learn so many things in school about so many different subjects. But, you don’t just learn about your subjects in school. You also learn how to behave in social situations with friends, classmates and teachers and how those social situations affect your emotions and behaviour. This kind of learning is much more important than the formal learning that you get in a school and this is Education in the truest sense.

–> 5. “Life isn’t worth living unless it is lived for someone else.”
This is a fact that not many of us understand. After all, right since birth, it has been about you. Your life revolves around you and you think about yourself 95% of the time. You haven’t been encouraged to think a lot about others. So, unless you start thinking more about others and give more of your mind-space to others, you won’t understand how much more satisfying and peaceful that kind of living is.

–> 6. “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.”
So, you have a lot of information about the subjects you study. You get A+ grade in school and college and are among the toppers in your field of study. So, this means you are very intelligent. Are you sure? Then what about those school drop-outs who were just average in their subjects and yet became these legends in society that we keep hearing about. Probably, they were the dreamers, the visionaries who saw things not as they are, but as they can be. They used their imagination to power their sustained action.

–> 7. “The only source of knowledge is experience.”
How do you gain knowledge? By reading a lot of books, you might say. But then what about the oft-stated ‘experience’. When do you get experience? You get it by going beyond books and standing on the field and making mistakes and learning. This process gives you knowledge that is purest in its form.

–> 8. “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
Whenever you have faced any problem, what has been your first reaction? You were seriously tempted to leave that problem, considering it ‘very difficult’ or even ‘impossible’ to solve. Some of you tried to give more time in finding a solution to the problem. But you couldn’t find it and you stopped. But then maybe there was one among you who kept thinking about the problem, trying different ways and means to solve it and often failing and making a lot of mistakes in the process. Ultimately the day came and he found the right solution to the problem. Then what did you call him? Genius 🙂

–> 9. “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”
Every person can be successful in so many different ways. Each person has his own definition of success. But not each person knows or understands what it is to be a man of value. You may not be providing much value to people in general and yet be successful. But then, if you can provide value to people and it helps them lead a better life in some way, then you become a man of value, not just a man of success.

Dear Mahatma Gandhi,

I just shared these thoughts with you for some reason I am yet to understand.

TWO GOOGLE BASICS FOR YOUR BUSINESS ☑️ . Let me give you an understatement -- Google is important for your business. 📣 . I know most of you already know this fact. But I wanted to repeat it once again. Now, my question: Are you using Google efficiently for your business? ⬇️ . I don't see that happening. All I see is that you are doing your daily Google search and getting on with life and business. ⛔️ . GOOGLE BASIC BENEFITS 🔃 . You need to get your Google basics right urgently, if you intend to compete and win against others in business. . 1⃣ GOOGLE MY BUSINESS (GMB): Go to your GMB listing and check whether you have updated all things properly there. If you don't have a GMB listing for your business,.... then a simple OMG is fine here. ◀️ . Update your phone number, add your website, add relevant pics of your business and get as many reviews as you can there on GMB from your business clients or customers. . 2⃣ GOOGLE MAPS: Add your business on Google Maps. When people search for directions to anywhere in your area, let your business name pop out on the map. ◀️ . Take care of these basics and Google will take care of your business. 🔆 . . (And yes, that's me with my brother after a round of shopping outside a store in Tokyo last year. 🙂) . . . . . . #digitalraza #instablog #instablogger #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #socialmarketing #googlemybusiness #googlesearch #google
WHAT'S THE ONLY GOAL THAT'S IN YOUR CONTROL ⚽️ . Do you consider goals as important? If you do, then allow me to share two insights I had related to goals. 🤾 . TWO GOAL TYPES 🛅 . On 1st January of 2019 as I sat down to journal a few thoughts, I started thinking about the importance of goals. In the process, I understood something new about goals. . 1⃣ RESULT GOALS: . All of us read and hear about target-oriented goals. Marketing is all about target-oriented goals. We decide the goal that we want to achieve and then move ahead from there. . I understood that this is what is ‘Result Goals’. The result that we want is put in the form of goals meant to be achieved. . 2⃣ ACTION GOALS: . On thinking about goals, I came to understand that if goals have to be achieved then action steps have to be taken. These action steps can be ‘Action Goals’. . WHAT'S IN MY CONTROL 🔏 . Between Result Goals and Action Goals, I tried to understand what is in my control. The answer was obvious: Action Goals. 📍 . What became clear to me was that Result is not in my hand. I can intend a good result. But Action is definitely in my control. I can take specific action. This action hopefully gets me my intended result. 📋 . So, while I am aware of my Result Goals, I choose to work on my Action Goals. 🔑 . . . . . . #digitalraza #instablog #instablogger #digitalmarketing #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #content #contentmarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #selfdevelopment #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #dailyaction #personalitydevelopment #actionsspeaklouder #control #intention #goals #goalsetting #results #result
TWO REASONS TO TAKE DAILY ACTION 🕺 . Action gets results. No action equals no result. 🎯 . All of us know this fact. And yet all of us don't really implement it. We don't put it into practice. If we did put it into practice, we would be blown away by the results. 🎳 . (By the way, it is only with daily monitoring and tweaking that results in good digital marketing.) 📣 . THAT DAILY ACTION 🎬 . Here are two reasons to take that daily action. . 1⃣ BETTER PROGRESS: You take action to achieve a goal. Whether big or small, there is always some kind of said or unsaid goal that calls out to you. . When you take that daily action, you ensure better progress towards your goal. You skip a day of action, your progress stumbles a bit. So, act daily. ✔️ . 2⃣ BETTER IDEAS: I think you already know about this. When you start taking action, your brain also starts firing up inside you. It starts presenting you with newer thoughts as you take your action steps. . When you take daily action, you are then assured of much better ideas coming to you on a daily basis. Your mind starts buzzing with good ideas. So get your daily dose of great ideas with daily action towards that goal. ✔️ . . . . . . #digitalraza #instablog #instablogger #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #socialmarketing #selfdevelopment #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #dailyaction
HAPPY 🆕 YEAR DEAR INSTAGRAM FAMILY 📣 . Let me wish you my dear Instagram family of digital marketers, business owners and so many well wishers in general a very happy new year. May you have a satisfying and positive 2019 that fills you with hope and happiness throughout the year. 🔑 . Today is Day 1 of the New Year. Allow me to share with you what I did first thing in the morning today. 🗓️ . 1⃣ GOALS: Yes, I opened my laptop and the 1st thing I did was write my goals for January 2019. Not for the whole year, but only for January. I wrote my RESULT GOALS and ACTION GOALS for the month. . I intend to measure how fast I am progressing on my decided actions. I believe actions will bring desired results. 📋 . 2⃣ FOCUS WORDS: I have written down some Focus Words that have meaning for me. Two of them are: SPEED and ULTRA DISCIPLINE. I keep them in mind for efficient action. . This is what I accomplished today on the 1st day of 2019. 📐 . Hope you too set your own goals and work towards achieving them this New Year. 🎉🎇 . Hope you have a solid business year as digital marketers and business owners. 🦄 . Cheers everyone 🙂 🥂 . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #socialmarketing #happynewyear #happynewyear2019
IS YOUR BUSINESS IGNORING SOCIAL MESSAGES 🤔 . I am curious about something. You are running a business and your business also has online social media presence. 👀 . But I find that most of you business owners (big or small) have ignored all those messages left on your social accounts by people. Those messages are just lying there waiting to be answered. Is this some business strategy? I am curious. 👂 . CALL OF SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT 📣 . Fact is: 89% of social media messages to brands go ignored. Why is this so? 🔦 . 1⃣ TOO BUSY? If you are too busy managing your business, then you better hire some digital marketing professional or digital agency. They will manage your social accounts and reply to messages on your behalf. Spend some money, or face negative impression. . 2⃣ LIMITED RESOURCES? If you have limited resources, then stick to one social media account for your business. Now take out 15 mins daily from your hectic schedule and reply to messages personally or get someone to do it. . 3⃣ TIME WASTE? If you think replying to social messages on your accounts is such a waste of time, then think again. You don't reply to critical or positive messages about your business, then you appear inconsiderate and aloof. Bad impression. . THE REPLY ADVANTAGE ✏️ . ▶️BUILD TRUST: Once you reply to messages, people nod their heads and begin to trust you. Good for business. . ▶️APPEAR HUMAN: Once you reply, then you appear human to people who check out your business account on social media. They know you are not some machine bot posting stuff. . Now go ahead and reply to all those messages. ✒️ . . . 🔥 If you like this post and want such digital marketing posts for your own blog, send me a mail.
