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: “You can’t have the fruits without the roots. It’s the principle of sequencing: Private Victories proceed Public Victories. Self-mastery and self-discipline are the foundation of good relationships with others.”

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Whether you’re on a sports team, in an office or a member of a family, if you can’t trust one another there’s going to be trouble.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Most learning is social, or what I call the cultural DNA. Everyone knows that word of mouth advertising is the best advertising. That’s social learning.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Affirm people. Affirm your children. Believe in them, not in what you see but in what you don’t see – their potential.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “People who exercise their embryonic freedom day after day, little by little, expand that freedom. People who do not will find that it withers until they are literally ‘being lived.’ They are acting out scripts written by parents, associates, and society.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Independent will is our capacity to act. It gives us the power to transcend our paradigms, to swim upstream, to rewrite our scripts, to act based on principle rather than reacting based on emotion or circumstance.”

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “It’s sometimes a painful process. It’s a change that has to be motivated by a higher purpose, by the willingness to subordinate what you think you want now for what you want later.”
