7 Habits of Highly Effective People

7-habits-of-highly-effective-people

The “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” book are easy to understand in 7 models and can be more difficult to apply in practice. Stephen Covey says that 7 Habits are a remarkable set of inspirational standards for anyone who seeks to live a better life.

Here is a quick summary. I encourage you to explore and use his ideas:-

Habit 1 – be proactive.
This is the ability to control one’s environment.

Habit 2 – begin with the end in mind.
To build a platform to avoid distractions and become more productive and successful.

Habit 3 – put first things first.
To organize and implement activities in line with the goals.

Habit 4 – think win-win.
Success follows a co-operative approach more naturally than the confrontation of win-or-lose.

Habit 5 – seek first to understand and then to be understood.
To develop and maintain positive relationships in all aspects of life.

Habit 6 – synergize.
Lays down the challenge to see the good and potential in the other person’s contribution.

Habit 7 – sharpen the saw.
To enable and encourage people to happen and grow.
