Imagination is more important than knowledge.
— Albert Einstein

Ramit Sethi, expert entrepreneur and behavioral psychologist, wrote a short e-mail about some of the problems smart people have. He says:⠀

1. They over intellectualize things.⠀
2. They're perfectionists.⠀
3. They're afraid of looking stupid.⠀
4. They forget what it's like to be a beginner.⠀
5. They want to skip the basics.⠀

What's interesting to me is that I see some of these, in MODERATION or SMALL DOSES, as necessary to being financially successful. ⠀

Steve Jobs and Mick Jagger would obsess over the smallest details before releasing any of their work. That obsession is arguably a piece of what got them to the top. ⠀

But, when we have a man, regarded as the greatest genius of our time (Albert Einstein), openly downplaying knowledge and promoting imagination, we have to ask and wonder:⠀

What is more important?⠀


After all, Steve Jobs himself said: "Stay hungry, stay foolish".⠀

The taoists would agree with Einstein and Jobs, turns out, so do I 😁⠀

Let the mind roam free! 👩‍🎤👍
