Thought of the day (an interesting contrast that bears reproduction):
“The ability to destroy a plan is insignificant next to the power of the Force.“
Darth Vader (Star Wars, circa 1977)
“The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person. Reactive people are driven by feelings, by circumstances, by conditions, by their environment. Proactive people are driven by values – carefully thought about, selected and internalized values.“
Stephen Covey (The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, 2004 Edn)
I found the similarity striking. What drives you, and what are your habits? If your response is value rather than response driven, you’ll be able to harness and maximise your own power regardless of the situation or circumstance.
