I will post, on Fridays, selected leadership quotes. I’ll try to maintain a theme in a given week’s quotes, but if something in particular strikes me that week, it will probably go in anyway!

This week, I’ve selected all of the quotes from Steven Covey in tribute to his inestimable contributions to the advancement of leadership, interpersonal relationships, and personal improvement.

Steven Covey on character and choice,

There are three constants in life… change, choice and principles.

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.

In the last analysis, what we are communicates far more eloquently than anything we say or do.

Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character.

We are not animals. We are not a product of what has happened to us in our past. We have the power of choice.

Take care, and enjoy life,
