Habit 2 – Begin With The End In Mind

(My review of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey)

“To begin with the end in mind means to begin each day, task, or project with a clear vision of your desired direction and destination, and then continue by flexing your proactive muscles to make things happen.” – Stephen R. Covey

  1. Hi Jason, I opened my Reader with my ‘end in mind’ (i.e. thinking about putting things in place as I age) and what was the first post I should open – in persimmon and ultramarine?! I appreciated hearing what you had to say. Best regards, Phil

    • “Mortality is that in relation to which we can be said to shape our selfhood. It is in relation to the reality of death, both my death and the deaths of others, that the self becomes most truly itself. It is only in relation to the acceptance of self-loss that there might be a self to gain.” – Simon Critchley, The Book of Dead Philosophers
