Week 1 Post #2 MNGT 137

“Make small commitments and keep them. Be a light, not a judge. Be a model, not a critic. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem.” – Stephen Covey, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People 

I love quotes that make you self-evaluate, like this one. And I especially like that this quote gives you an alternative to a negative habit, instead of just telling the reader not to do something. As a person that is continually trying to better myself, I think it’s important to read things like this and interpret them into my life context.

For me, sometimes it’s easier to be negative and judgmental instead of trying to seek a solution for myself, but when I’m able to read quotes like this often, it becomes easier to take the time to make a positive decision or thought instead of defaulting to a negative head space.
