This is another one of Einstein’s quotes, that at a first glance would appear contradictory to business culture.
Another of such quotes: Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.
Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.– Albert Einstein
If we take the quote literary, we understand that one should not pursue success but integrity. In the business world reputation is everything, now more than ever, thus this quote make half sense, the other half would not fit the business world that is focused on success.
In business, an entrepreneur can become a man of value, all while pursuing success, and becoming successful. Furthermore a business can have values like quality, equality, innovation, all while being successful.
