Priorities and Paradigm
Quotes by Steven R. Covey

“How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most”

“We may be very busy, we may be very efficient, but we will also be truly effective only when we begin with the end in mind.”

“Once you have a clear picture of your priorities – that is values, goals, and high leverage activities – organize around them.”

“The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.”


“The way we see the problem is the problem”

“We simply assume that the way we see things is the way they really are or the way they should be. And our attitudes and behaviors grow out of these assumptions.”

“People with a scarcity mentality tend to see everything in terms of win-lose. There is only so much; and if someone else has it, that means there will be less for me. The more principle-centered we become, the more we develop an abundance mentality; the more we are genuinely happy for the successes, well-being, achievements, recognition, and good fortune of other people. We believe their success adds to…rather than detracts from…our lives.”
