I am happy to endorse G. Brian Benson and his excellent book, Habits for Success. My father, the late Stephen R. Covey, often said that most people innately know how they should be living their lives, but unfortunately ‘common sense is not always common practice.’ This superb book by G. Brian Benson reveals many common-sense habits that may not be so commonly practiced today. These habits are wise, proactive principles that if practiced, will greatly enhance the lives of the readers. An excellent work!
