Things to think about - Love is a better teacher than duty

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier


“Love is a better teacher than duty.” Albert Einstein

I always find Albert Einstein’s down-to-earth insights into everyday life so refreshing. This quote reminds us of the importance of finding something we love to which we commit our time and energy. Einstein’s love of physics was the joy of his life, and it is what drove him to learn and achieve all he did.  There is, however, a paradox here.  I often hear from people that they just don’t feel that sense of “love” for whatever it is to which they are referring—a job, a project, a relationship, an industry—you get the idea. Too often, though, what is not understood is that love is something that must be cultivated and worked on every day in order to be sustainable.  In other words, in order to love, one must invest themselves. Love, unlike infatuation, is an active undertaking.  So, when I ask someone how much they are investing themselves in whatever it is, many times I get a blank look.  So, here’s my message: Infatuation can be fun, but it is fleeting unless there is some personal investment in learning, understanding and caring. So, as you reflect on this quote and its importance in your life, don’t forget to ask yourself how much you are willing to invest of yourself to develop that love before you look elsewhere.

Good luck on your journey!
