Remember, life is a mission, not a career. A career is a profession.

A mission is a cause.

A career asks, “What’s in it for me?”

A mission asks, “How can I make a difference?”

An insightful new book from the multimillion-copy bestselling author Sean Covey, Chris McChesney, Jim Huling and the FranklinCovey organization based on their work with hundreds of thousands of employees and large companies to unveil the essential disciplines proven to help businesses and individuals realize their most important goals.

Do you remember the last major initiative you watched die in your organization? Did it go down with a loud crash? Or was it slowly and quietly suffocated by other competing priorities?

By the time it finally disappeared, it’s likely no one even noticed.

What happened? The “whirlwind” of urgent activity required to keep things running day-to-day devoured all the time and energy you needed to invest in executing your strategy for tomorrow! The 4 Disciplines of Execution can change all that forever.
