Quotes and Comments by Stephen Covey
Without valuing interdependence and abundance
thinking, you won't be able to keep first things
first. Some people never understand these realities.
They fall back into independence and scarcity
thinking. Those perspectives are more a function
of scripting than of anything else. But we can
change the script.
I don't talk much about ethics and values because
to me those words imply situational behaviors,
subjective beliefs, social mores, cultural norms,
or relative truths. I prefer to talk about universal
principles and natural laws that are more absolute.
Only by centering on "timeless" principles
and then living by them can we enjoy sustained
moral, physical, social, and financial wellness.
Keeping a personal journal a daily in-depth
analysis and evaluation of your experiences
is a high-leverage activity that increases self-awareness
and enhances all the endowments and the synergy
