When I think of work, I think of creativity – both in terms of jobs we perform for others and in entrepreneurial work we create on our own.
And, when I think of creativity, Albert Einstein comes immediately to mind. This week “The Heart of Innovation” posted “35 Awesome Quotes from Einstein.” Four that I find most meaningful are:
1. “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” (They did not include the rest and perhaps most poignant part of this quote – which is: “For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
2. “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
3. “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
4. “If you cannot explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
Happy Labor Day! May the fruits of your labor be nourished with curiosity.
