Everyday Greatness by Stephen R. Covey


In order to have everyday greatness there are things that you need to have and adapt into your life. Stephen Covey writes about: “Searching for meaning, taking charge, starting within, creating the dream, teaming with others, overcoming adversity, and blending the pieces”. In each section there are stories that talk about the topic with quotes at the end of each chapter.

The book is about having good character and a generous life which is not common in today’s society. It’s about living your life with purpose and meaning everyday of your life, by making “the choice to Act, the choice of Purpose, and the choice for Principle”.

This book can be read in one chunk or digested over a long period of time. It will inspire and lift you up while helping you adjust different areas in your life. But no matter what it will encourage you to have everyday greatness.

At the end of the book the author gives six suggestions to put the book into practice, which I love. I love practical implications with a book full of stories and quotes. It really brought it home for me and showed me a way to apply what I have read. I would recommend this book to anyone but especially someone that is looking for a book to read a little over an extended amount of time.
