Bound to be Read

WOD: 5 mile trail run

Happy 2014!

In the spirit of reflecting and resolving, I am re-visiting the book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.

I was recently asked to list 10 books that have in some way stayed with me and changed my life. This is hands down one of those books.

A key take away is this truth: Between stimulus and response is the freedom to choose.

That wisdom has served me well when I am tempted to blame someone else or some random circumstance or to give someone else power over what I value in a re-active manner.

I'll be taking time this month to be definitive about my values, roles and the goals I have for myself for this year.

Cheers to a Highly Effective year!
