History books are crammed with famous Optimal Thinkers from every walk of life. Albert Einstein encouraged us to live according to an Optimal standard. He said: “We have to do the best we can. This is our sacred human responsibility.” Benjamin Franklin put Optimal Thinking to work when he said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” Below is a selection of Optimal Thinking quotes from well-known people and businesses.

    "When she (my mother) passed away, I kind of understood the commitment that she made to make sure that I could stay in skating. And I wanted to live up to whatever I could. Not so much win everything, but just to be the best that I could possibly be, to honor her memory and everything she went through to make sure that I was given the opportunities to be the best that I can be. Not to be a world champion or an Olympic gold medalist, but to be the best that I could be. And that was the most important thing that ever happened in my career."
