BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, December 19th, 2011 by Stephen Covey in THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE

“If we want to make relatively minor changes in our lives, we can perhaps appropriately focus on our attitudes and behaviors. But if we want to make significant, quantum change, we need to work our basic paradigms.

In the words of Thoreau, “For every thousand hacking at the leaves of evil, there is one striking at the root.” We can only achieve quantum improvements in our lives as we quit hacking at the leaves of attitude and behavior and get to work on the root, the paradigms from which our attitudes and behaviors flow.”

           Stephen Covey, in “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”
