To Go Where Your VisionPoints, a few inspiration points for you and your business.

If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is
x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.
— Albert Einstein

You won’t forget to work right now. Who could forget work at a time like this? (You must write, “at a time like this,” in italics. So it sounds dramatic. Because “times like these” are made for drama.)

I know you’ve heard a million times about the value of listening. I think he recommends it wonderfully.

Here’s what strikes me about this quotation:

Albert Einstein, famous for his work, says Go Play.

I hope you’ll be famous for your work one day, too.

If you don’t make time for play, I firmly believe you won’t get to that day. So try not to get your knickers in a knot over things we can’t control, and instead, take control of your attitude: Laugh. Run. Make a horrible joke at work, and get someone to spit out their coffee. Take time with your kid, your niece, your grandchildren. Draw stick figures. Kiss your spouse.

Go Play. That’s a big part of “having it all,” and you can have that part right away.


Grow and be well,
