Einstein once said that if you gave him an hour to solve a problem and his life depended on getting the right answer, he would spend fifty five minutes figuring out what QUESTIONS to ask.

Food for thought: In one study when some professionals were asked “have you considered a sufficient numbers of alternatives?”  They simply answered “yes” and then went on with their work.  But when they were instead asked “what are the TWO other alternatives you could use in this situation?”  they discovered NEW possibilities.


You are born with an inheritance of richness.

–      A richness of love

–      A richness of relationships

–      A richness of happiness, laughter and smile

–      A richness of purity of thoughts

–      A richness of hope and optimism

But somewhere towards our journey we lose our rich inheritance and become pauper acquiring

–      Poverty of love

–      Poverty of relationships

–      Poverty of happiness, laughter and smile

–      Poverty of purity of thoughts

–     Poverty of hope and optimism

Stand guard at your inheritance and compound your richness.
