Key Takeaways

  • Deep and meaningful relationships are built upon open, honest, and sometimes difficult conversations. Unfettered exchange of information and feelings can illuminate the roots of deep-seated convictions and emotions, thus allowing people to gain better understanding of one another.
  • Multigenerational families have the opportunity to learn from one another's experiences and provide support when the traditional family structure (such as parent and child) isn't working.
  • Scripts, or the way one thinks and acts, can be changed. For example, abuse in childhood doesn't mean abused children have to abuse their own children. They can serve as a "transition" person and break the cycle of abuse by rewriting their own script.
  • Covey's "personal conviction" about the "source of correct principles" is rooted in religion. "Correct principles are natural laws" created by God. Humans are incapable of perfection, but when they follow "correct principles, divine endowments will be released" within their nature.
