Give more than you consume — Albert Einstein’s Work Ethic

in GEMS2 months ago


Albert Einstein was a great physicist who developed the theory of relativity and a lot more. Through his career and lifetime, he was known for his tremendous contributions and achievement through the science world.

Albert Einstein died in Preston Hospital in 1955. He suffered an abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture for a while before his death. This is a little about his life, but this is not the part I want to focus on. People live and die, but what makes a difference.

Ralph Morse was a popular photographer working for LIFE Magazine during the time of Albert Einstein and he knew the minute when Albert Einstein died, but he was late to reach the Hospital so he could not take the last picture of the Archetypal man. But he decided to check his office because that might be the last useful image to show about the life of Albert Einstein. He drove down to his office, and he took this shot.

Albert Einstein work moral principles

Albert Einstein suffered abdominal pain for several years before his death in 1955. The pain used to last for days whenever it started, and the pain was often. But through this period for him, he never stopped working. He worked till his last breath. It was recorded that he took a piece of paper of the work he was during while they took him to the hospital. The paper contains the speech he was writing to address a congregation.

One of Albert Einstein quote is “Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.”

I saw this popular quote many years ago, and I could not understand it on a glance. I read through and had to think of the true meaning of value. Success is all most of us craved for, but more of success are dwelt in value.

Albert Einstein relativity work was published in the year 1915 and he won the Nobel Prize in 1921. But he never stopped contributing to the world until his death. He never rested on the fact of his health issues.

We all have a gift to contribute to the world. There is that thing you know how to do that could make the world or your environment better, but you consider the $ you will get or may not get. There is greater value in giving out to the world. If you sight a problem, try to fix it, and that success you want would eventually come. Many people have lived and died, many were forgotten, but many names are still in our minds because of their contributions to the world.


Martha Graham said,

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all the time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.”

It is not our business to judge our work; it is our responsibility to create. We should focus more on giving our best in everything we do. And in the end, we should be able to say- I have done a considerable part. Albert Einstein's life was significant, and we all should learn from it.


Awesome blog post, @tykee! It was a pleasure reading it...
I agree with all said... I was always running to get as more money possible, but when I swapped my thinking to contribute more to the community and others, my whole world changed... It'a all about giving, the rest will come...

Thanks again!
