Hey, if you’re holding a phone or else you’re reading this article from a mobile device, then you should need to know about this person. His name was Alexander Graham Bell. He is credited as the inventor of the telephone. Although he was not the first person who came with an idea to invent the telephone, it has actually come from an Italian inventor Antonio Meucci.
However, Alexander Graham Bell designed and patented the first telephone. The first call of humankind had made on March 10, 1876. The first conversation was with Alexander Graham Bell and his assistant Thomas Watson and what was the conversation? “Mr. Watson–come here–I want to see you.”
Here are his thoughts on productivity and a fruitful life.
Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus. – Alexander Graham Bell
It would be one of our biggest problems that we don’t focus on one topic or one subject. Whenever we work, we don’t give our hundred percent. Instead, we divide our attention. It is not necessary that it will be social sites or online platforms, it could be anywhere. In my experience, I witnessed those are the people who fail to notice focus who find themselves off minded. Most of the time when these people work, they find their focus somewhere else.
Before anything else, preparation is the key to success. – Alexander Graham Bell
Without having a good plan or a proper preparation, it would be hard for you to complete a task with your full potential. So, before you do anything, please make sure that you have a good plan on your hand. A plan will help you to create your craft well. For example, if you’re going to give a lecture on a subject, it would be your priority to make a research on that subject first. Research based arguments will give you confidence and internal energy.
Don’t keep forever on the public road, going only where others have gone and following one after the other like a flock of sheep. Leave the beaten track occasionally and dive into the woods. – Alexander Graham Bell
The best of the best had done by those people who followed their dreams and their passion. However, in our case, we do the opposite of that movement. Instead of following our passion and dreams we follow that job which gives us money. If you follow and do that work which doesn’t give you satisfaction then how come you expect that you will be productive?
The achievement of one goal should be the starting point of another. – Alexander Graham Bell
Achievement is not a stable position; it’s a constant process. If you stop your growth after reaching to an achievement, then there would be higher chances that someone else will pass through you. In fact, you will lose your credibility. For example, if an Olympian stop his/her practice after winning his/her first medal, then there would be no change to achieve it again.
Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds. – Alexander Graham Bell
Would you love to work with someone who is not social or not flexible enough to understand your views? A person who works single-handedly and only depends and trust himself will not be able to reach his/her highest goals. Great things and great works have been done by those people who are willing enough to work with others and even do it passionately.
It is the man who carefully advances step by step – who is bound to succeed in the greatest degree. – Alexander Graham Bell
I had learned about this message after a long time. In my case, the damage had already been done. However, I have learned a lesson from it. Whatever the situation or how much dedication you have for your work still don’t hurry to accomplish it. If you run to achieve anything in your life later, you will regret because of it. If your job takes enormous time and labor to produce; have faith that it will also give you the result in that way.
A man, as a general rule, owes very little to what he is born with – a man is what he makes of himself. – Alexander Graham Bell
If a person wants to achieve something and found barriers in front of him just because of opportunities or any other things related to money or workforce, it would be his/her false argument or disbelieve in his abilities. A man with a creative mind and with a genuine desire to build something new, never stops their journey just because of a lack of source. They create opportunity; they make it possible for themselves.
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us. – Alexander Graham Bell
Have you ever faced these arguments: I cannot do this task, or it’s tough for me or else I don’t have time for it? Then it’s time for you to wake up. I don’t believe that if you want to do something wholeheartedly; you will not be able to accomplish it. Anything is possible in this world; often we give up so quickly that we don’t see the opportunities ahead of us. Try for at once, at least at the end of the day; you will not regret.
