Covey quotes
Values are social norms they're personal, emotional, subjective, and arguable. All of us have values. Even criminals have values. The question you must ask yourself is, Are your values based upon principles? In the last analysis, principles are natural laws they're impersonal, factual, objective and self-evident. Consequences are governed by principles and behavior is governed by values; therefore, value principles!

Give no answer to contentious arguments or irresponsible accusations. Let such things "fly out open windows" until they spend themselves.
Covey Stephen
Because of the space between stimulus and response, people have the power of choice; therefore, leaders are neither born nor made meaning environmentally ?trained and nurtured. They are self-made through chosen responses, and if they choose based on principles and develop increasingly greater discipline, their freedom to choose increases.
