"The bottom line is that the smallest crowd that you will ever lead is you - but it's also the most important one."

Personal leadership, says Stephen Covey, is an ongoing process in which we should align our behaviour with our vision and values.

The lockdown has deepened my spiritual life and my appreciation of Nature, strengthened my marriage and increased my productivity. These and other benefits have occurred because, from the first day of the lockdown, I added a few new habits to my existing daily routine.
