“Inside-out” means to start first with self; even more fundamentally, to start with the most inside part of self…  -Stephen Covey

In his landmark personal development work, The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People, author Stephen Covey explains that success starts inside of you.  “If you want to have more freedom, more latitude in your job, be a more responsible, a more helpful, a more contributing employee.  If you want to be trusted, be trustworthy.  If you want the secondary greatness of recognized talent, focus first on primary greatness of character,” he explains.

This week, I encourage you to “start first with self;” and to have what you want, are you being that person first?

Enjoy a happy and productive week!
