Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Basing our happiness on our ability to control everything is futile.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Look at the word responsibility – “response-ability” – the ability to choose your response. Highly proactive people recognize that responsibility.

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “To focus on technique is like cramming your way through school. You sometimes get by, perhaps even get good grades, but if you don’t pay the price day in and day out, you’ll never achieve true mastery of the subjects you study or develop an educated mind.”

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Whether we are aware of it or not, whether we are in control of it or not, there is a first creation to every part of our lives.

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Unfortunately, too many executives believe the myths about trust. Myths like how trust is soft and is merely a social virtue. The reality is that trust is hard-edged and is an economic driver.”
