Quotes About Covey

"Coveys solution is to prioritise work that is important but not urgent (the blue square in thediagram). Though this is hard to do on any given day, it is the only way to ensure you are makingprogress towards your own goals and dreams, instead of merely reacting to what other peoplethrow at you. And over time, the more you are dealing with important things before they becomeurgent, the fewer ‘urgent and important tasks you will have to deal with.The most obvious way to do this is to work on your own projects first every day, even if its onlyfor half an hour. Whatever interruptions come along later, you will at least have the satisfaction ofhaving made some progress towards your own goals." - Author: Mark McGuinness

Quotes About Optimisim

"Only 12 managers have lasted more than three years with the Indians, and only three of those who did last longer than three years managed to do so without a winning record. The Indians have made strides in many areas the last three years and the shifts and changes amongst the coaching staff resulted in a highly respected group that was anxious and ready to guide the Tribe back to the postseason, but unfortunately it never materialized. Turns out the three-year threshold is a pretty solid limit for how patient an organization is when it comes to managers, and the gains made in 2011 were completely lost and then some in 2012. Actas tenure with the club came to an end with six games left on the 2012 schedule. He ranks 13th in franchise history for games managed, but any optimisim regarding the Tribe in 2013 will rest squarely with new hire Terry Francona." - Author: Tucker Elliot

Quotes About Gorgeous Friends

"[Theres] one... thing I can tell you about human nature: beautiful people are the last ones you want to befriend. Beautiful people float through life thinking that its perfectly normal for others to gaze at them adoringly, and open doors for them, and defer to their opinion... Doesnt anyone understand that beautiful people are stupid? Thats why nature made them beautiful, so theyd have a chance at surviving in the wild. And how do they survive? They use people and then they drop people, and they float away on the currents of their own gorgeousness to the next poor girl who thinks that being friends with a beutiful person will somehow make her beautiful, too. Ive got news for you: Hanging around beautiful people just makes you uglier by comparison." - Author: Amy Kathleen Ryan

Quotes About Value And Worth

"The root of all inauthentic manifestations of being-with-others is the attitude of self-concern. It is in this state of mind that, either consciously or unconsciously, we reduce the central aim of all value and meaning to the accomplishment of the welfare of ourselves alone. This attitude can operate very deviously even in the person who outwardly appears to be thoroughly altruistic. Despite all magnanimous commitments and generous deeds, it silently measures the ultimate worth of these things in terms of the personal satisfaction that results from them. It is the root of inauthentic being-with because it is primarily responsible in preventing our essential being-with-others from full and genuine expression." - Author: Stephen Batchelor
