Where you are headed is more important than how fast you're going, yet people are consumed with speed rather than direction.
The quickest way to someone's heart is to listen. Listen to their words, their feelings, their body language. Listen to understand.
Today marks Stephen's 80th birthday. His legacy reflects his many years of wisdom, service and influence. He was mission driven and wholly dedicated to helping people find their voice and release their potential. Stephen often asked people to imagine their 80th birthday, where there is a gathering of people to celebrate their life. So imagine your 80th or another birthday in the future. Who would be there? What would they say about you...what would you want to be said about you, about your qualities, what your life represents, the kinds of relationships you have? Imagine this. Now, live this and be that person. Begin with the end in mind.
