Everyday Greatness

It was wonderful to be bathed in uplifting stories. The scope of the collection is bound to reach you at some point. Stephen Covey does an excellent job of combining the stories into different disciplines that are essential to what he deems "everyday greatness."

The quotes at the end of each chapter are full of memorable tidbits to be taken away and chewed on through out the day. The questions that Covey puts forward in each section are well thought out and to the point.

By far, my favorite section of the book was "Blending of Pieces." The stories express balance, simplicity and renewal in very insightful ways. The story that has been most beneficial to my current situation is "Two Words to Avoid, Two to Remember."

This collection has allowed me to pause in my day and to determine if I desire to pursue personal greatness or to just let each day pass. It is an excellent resource for individuals or groups. The questions at the end of the chapters can really help stimulate discussion. It can be taken by chapter or read as a whole. The stories fit their chapter titles and are easily found again by using the index.
