In Stephen Covey's book The 8th Habit he speaks about four key assumptions for life:
For your body, assume you've had a heart attack; now eat and exercise accordingly.
For your heart, assume everything you say about another person, they can overhear; now speak accordingly. Always be loyal to the absent if you want to maintain the loyalty of those present.
For your mind, assume the half-life for your profession or work is two years; now prepare accordingly.
For your spirit, assume you have one-on-one communication with your creator now live accordingly.
Could these ideas help bring direction to your day and changes to your life?
