I just heard that Stephen Covey died. I never met him, and still his ideas had an impact on my life and work.
One of the ideas he wrote about is “begin with the end in mind“. He wrote about thinking about the day of your funeral and what you want to be true about your life. I have to believe he reached the end of his life on earth knowing his positive impact was enormous.
I want to be able to say that at the end of my life on earth. That means making choices today, taking deliberate action in the present, to move toward the desired result. I know of no more powerful principle than this.
