“Fundamentally, these are the core four— the power four— that sustain us and direct our outcome and well being…”

Martin opens with a story shared by the late, great Dr. Stephen Covey regarding the unwavering principles that influence the outcome of our life. If these are ignored, dishonored the consequences are severe.

Covey shares a fabled (and apparently fabricated) story about a US Navy Captain being told that another ship is in their course and further, is unwilling to move.

The Captain gets on the phone and demands the other ship to move or suffer the consequences.

The importance of checking our ego, asking questions and “honoring” these four dimensions helps us to direct the consequences. That is, since the lighthouses (the principles are unwavering) we must “move” and honor them with our actions in order to experience the outcomes we desire.

Dr. Covey’s four dimensions are:

  • Mind
  • Body
  • Heart
  • Spirit

Grunburg sees some overlap between the heart and the body and also the mind and so, insists that the social dimension (is missing) and is a governing principle in our lives that cannot be overlooked

  • Mind
  • Body
  • Spirit
  • Social
