Special thanks to Rajni for contributing today’s quote.  I wanted to authenticate this attribution and learned it has been contested.  While in Hawaii in 1963, Covey found this written in a book.  He never could find the source and even tried going back to the library years later but the book (and the library) were long gone.  The story about Covey’s search is here on Quote Investigator – great site!

Covey is a very quotable source.  He went on to add to this great advice with more:

“I am not the product of my circumstances.  I am the product of my choices.”

I always thought it would be handy to have a flashing neon sign in that space between stimulus (especially conflict) and response, maybe something like:

THINK, THEN SPEAK!

or

LISTEN, THEN REACT!

or

CHOOSE LOVE, NOT FEAR!

What would be on the neon sign in your space between stimulus and response?
