Thirty years ago a friend sent me a self help book called The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. It is not a book I would normally read. The publisher filled the cover with words like “success,” “profit,” and “power.” However, the friend who sent me the book is not into profit or success or power. He is a minister with the Volunteers of America and oversees management and fundraising for homeless shelters and shelters for battered women and their children.
So on my friend’s recommendation, I read the book. The author, Steven Covey, suggested that each of us has a center. He says our center has an all-encompassing influence on our lives.
