It is in the ordinary events of every day that we develop the proactive capacity to handle the extraordinary pressures of life. It’ s how we make and keep commitments, how we handle a traffic jam, how we respond to an irate customer or disobedient child. It’ s how we view our problems and where we focus our energies.

-Stephen Covey, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, 1989
