The good stuff

I thought of you when I read this quote from “Forward: 7 Distinguishing Marks for Future Leaders” by Ronnie Floyd –

I know that the best-selling author Stephen Covey is a Mormon, but his principle “Putting First Things First” is helpful here. He writes, “But you have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage— pleasantly, smilingly, non-apologetically— to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside. The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the good.” 4”
