Top 7 Inspirational Quotes for Business Success for the week of May 9 – 13th
Skybox Creative’s Exclusive New Inspiration for Business Success
Blog by poet & author Prartho Sereno
I’ve been noticing that almost every list I create for these weekly Top 7 Inspirational Quotes for Business Success seems to include the words of Albert Einstein. No matter the theme, as soon as I begin my search, there he is with the wisest and wittiest thought. What a delight his brilliance brings to us. Not just Relativity Theory, E=MC2, and all that, but humor and compassion, and the fine art of taking himself lightly. One of my favorite of his quotes is: “I never keep anything in my mind I can look up.” (Quipped after he couldn’t remember his own phone number!)
The truth is, with our Blackberries and Bots, GPS, digital address books, and endless apps, none of us need much clutter upstairs anymore. Through the magic of technology, we all have more space for the good work of imagining. Or so it would seem. Sometimes it’s hard to come to terms with the immensity of the creative force that is technology as it continues to grow by leaps and bounds.
So this week, letting Uncle Albert take the lead, let’s contemplate the wonders and pitfalls of this undeniable life-changing force: Technology!
