A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on ability, awareness, choice, conscience, day, decisions, empowerment, imagination, independence, learning, management, and self-awareness

In addition to self-awareness, imagination and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment-independent will-that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to proactively carry out the program we have developed through the other three endowments. Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on achievement, day, education, good, mind, schools, and study

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 never achieve true mastery of the subjects you study or develop and educated mind.
