“…But how’s with the social, intellectual and emotional differences? Could those also be a source for new fascinating lifeforms? Couldn’t there be an environment created with these that allows one genuinely fulfill herself, nourished everyone’s dignity and gives everyone opportunities to develop towards independence and thus step by step towards reciprocal dependence?
Could synergy be the new screenplay for the new generation to encourage to serve and help others, and prevent protection of self-interests, selfishness and juxtaposition thinking?
Couldn’t there be a new script that also increases openness, trust, will to give, and guides to love others and care about them, but at the same time reduces possessiveness and judgment of others?”
This is a translated [by me, so sorry about the possible flaws in the language] excerpt from the Finnish translation of the book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey. I very much recommend this book to everyone. More about the book at Goodreads.
