- Wisdom From Stephen Covey

We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.
Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is importa.
I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.
We see the world, not as it is, but as we are.
Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.
To know and not to do is really not to know.
Without involvement, there is no commitment. Mark it down, asterisk it, circle it, underline it. No involvement, no commitment.
The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
As long as you think the problem is out there, that very thought is the problem.
If you really want to improve your situation, you can work on the one thing over which you have control - yourself.
Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.
It is one thing to make a mistake, and quite another thing not to admit it. People will forgive mistakes, because mistakes are usually of the mind, mistakes of judgment. But people will not easily forgive the mistakes of the heart, the ill intention, the bad motives, the prideful justifying cover-up of the first mistake.
There are three constants in life... Change, Choice and Principles.
The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.
