Words to live by

This quote from Stephen Covey expresses so many core values of IDR. We each strive to integrate the principles of humility, courage, and wisdom in all we do. These principles govern our actions, and help us live our lives to maximize our full potential.

“Wisdom is the child of integrity—being integrated around principles. And integrity is the child of humility and courage. In fact, you could say that humility is the mother of all virtues because humility acknowledges that there are natural laws or principles that govern the universe. They are in charge. Pride teaches us that we are in charge. Humility teaches us to understand and live by principles, because they ultimately govern the consequences of our actions. If humility is the mother, courage is the father of wisdom. Because to truly live by these principles when they are contrary to social mores, norms and values takes enormous courage.”
Stephen R. Covey
