“If A equals success, then the formula is: A=X+Y+Z. X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.” – Albert Einstein
Let’s look at the 3 variables in this equation.
3. Keeping your mouth shut!
1. Work: Albert Einstein had a tremendous work ethic and because of that gave more to society and modern science than any person in recent times.
2. Play: Einstein, however, did not work 24 hours a day and made time for fun and relaxation. His idea of fun may have been different than yours, but that does not mean it still was not play.
3. Keeping your mouth shut: Finally, my favorite part of his success formula is to keep your mouth shut.
I genuinely believe that the person who talks the least says the most.
Shift your mind-set from being a talker to a listener.
