Create value to create success

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”  Albert Einstein

Are you seeking success or seeking to create value?

Of course there is a context for success and value,  in a classroom perhaps, you are creating success for yourself.    The value is in the learning.

The most successful people are continually learning, continually adding value to themselves and to others.   It is the continual learning that creates value that leads to success.   The most successful people spend much more than the average person on developing their skills.    The less successful, or even unsucessful, spend more time entertaining themselves than they do actively engaging in learning something new.

In a world that is only getting more and more competitive the entertainment lifestyle will have to give way to continuous learning and the result of continually being able to add value to the organization, community, and others in the world around you.

Now, if the most successful people spend 10% on reinventing themselves by learning something new each day, what are you doing to increase your success and value?

  1. I like the idea of doing something each day. I find this is the best method and to get into a routine of learning something new.

  2. Learning one new thing each day is the way to go!

    • It is like taking vitamins for the mind … one a day … slowly overtime you create a positive differential in terms of success, and fulfillment. You position yourself for greater achievement when you are continually learning.
