Finding your voice

I recently bought Stephen Covey's new book "The 8th Habit" and have been spending some time listening to it. I must say, it is certainly thought-provoking. The essence of the book is divided into two parts:

1. Find Your Voice

2. Inspire Others To Find Their Voice

This book is all about anchoring your actions and decisions to your values and passion, and about providing encouragement and opportunity to others to give them a chance to make Meaningful contributions. Easier than it sounds, of course, but a very inspiring concept.

I've always remembered Covey's statement that a vital aspect of success in life is "Integrity in the moment of truth" - something it's easy to forget when the pressure is on and short cut approaches become more attractive.
