In addition to self-awareness, imagination, and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment -- independent will -- that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them.

Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day.
