Business Quote of the Week – 10/1/2007
“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” – Albert Einstein
Commentary: There is something to be said about sustained thinking and obsessing over a problem. Einstein spent years thinking about some of his theories and problems. Others usually give up after their problems seem insurmountable.
I don’t think years are required to solve most problems, you just have to do the thinking and stick with it until the solution presents itself.
Here’s a bonus quote along the same lines:
“No problem can stand the assault of sustained thinking” – Voltaire
