Inspiration for the Masses
I'm not usually a fan of motivational speakers or the quotes they throw around, and I've never gotten into the infamous Stephen Covey of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People fame. (Not to be confused with Kip Winger of Winger fame.) I've heard good things about Mr. Covey. But like I said, I'm not so much into that whole self-improvement genre.
But today I read a quote that struck me as interesting, true, and yes, even a little bit inspirational. Of course, it could be because my mind has turned to Jell-O [wiggle when you jiggle it] after six days of good old fashioned headaches and these new-fangled (suspected) migraines. You be the judge:
"You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage -- pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically -- to say 'no' to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger 'yes' burning inside. The enemy of the 'best' is often the good.'" -- Stephen Covey
