Great show NG put on. It was informative and entertaining. There was a lot I didn’t know about Einstein. These are a few takeaways I got from the show.

1. Being selfish catches up.

Einstein cared a lot about his profession. . . a lot. Everything else fell by the wayside. He also promiscuous and was unfaithful in several relationships.

His selfishness caught up, and only when he was in his final years did he realize the impact he had on his family.

Family comes first.

2. Never give up

Einstein was very intelligent, but he was an extremely hard worker. There’s a lot of math in physics. Math is a pain in the ass and it will test you. When something didn’t work or when people were rooting against him, he kept moving forward because he believed it could be done.

3. Follow your principles

Be your own person. Pave your own road. Challenge the status quo. Think for yourself. Don’t sacrifice your values for money or fame. It sends the signal that your character is cracked and you can be bought. Your character is what defines you.

Check out the numbers below to be part of my journey to 100.
