I was an acquaintance of one of Stephen R. Covey's daughters at BYU around 1993-94. At one point I was invited up to his house with his daughter and hung out with their family.
Stephen took my friend and I on a tour of his home. It was incredible. His home was designed with a lot of symbolism in mind.
Here was my favorite. We went upstairs to his office and he told me to sit at his desk. I looked at him like, "Are you serious". He said, "Yeah, take a see I want to show you something."
So I sat at his desk and looked up. He said "You see those three circular window?"
"Yeah" was my reply.
"Well look through them and tell me what you see."
"Well, I see the Provo Temple through that window."
"And how about the others?"
"Oh, I see the MTC through that one."
"Yes you do, was his reply, and how about that one?"
"Yes, he said. When I sit at my desk I am always reminded of the 3 missions of the Church. Perfect the Saints, Preach the Gospel, and Redeem the Dead."
I will never forget that moment.
