What is Sharpen the Saw (Covey)

Covey means that, just as you need to sharpen the saw now and then, or just as you need to brush your teeth to keep them white and healthy, you also need to invest time and effort at regular intervals to keep your body and mind in good shape. They are your tools. Managers who (think they) are too busy to do some exercising or take a break can indeed easily fall into a trap of working with poor 'tools'.
