Steve Jobs on Taking and Giving

“You know, we don’t grow most of the food we eat. We wear clothes other people make. We speak a language that other people developed. We use a mathematics that other people evolved… I mean, we’re constantly taking things. It’s a wonderful, ecstatic feeling to create something that puts it back in the pool of human experience and knowledge.”

Steven Covey on Leading a Balanced Life

Steven Covey in The 8th Habit:

“…by making 4 simple assumptions in your life, you can immediately begin leading a more balanced, integrated powerful life…

(1) Assume you’ve had a heart attack, now live accordingly.

(2) Assume the half-life of your profession is 2 years, now prepare accordingly.

(3) Assume that everything you say about another they can overhear, now speak accordingly.

(4) Assume you have a one-on-one visit with your creator every quarter, now live accordingly.”
