Gratitude for the "Zentrepreneur" Philosophy

Ron Rubin playfully calls himself the Minister of the Republic of Tea, and the chairman of the board's advice is to "become a Zentrepreneur."

Rubin said he's seen CEOs too often work excessive hours and neglect their family, as well as their own peace of mind.

Balance is key, Rubin said, and he spells it out in his book: A Zentrepreneur's Guide: Success at Life, How to Catch and Live Your Dream.

In his book, Rubin quotes Albert Einstein who said, "You cannot solve a problem with the same consciousness that created it."

A study of Fortune 500 CEOs revealed that these successful people worked into their schedule daily quiet reflection.

We should all be grateful for Rubin, this whimsical minister of tea whose motto is "sip by sip rather than gulp by gulp," because he's offering up a new model for success, one built on balance.
