Steven Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Successful People


In this seminal work, Stephen R. Covey presents a holistic, integrated, principle-centered approach for solving personal and professional problems. Covey reveals a step-by-step pathway for living with fairness, integrity, honesty and human dignity―principles that give us the security to adapt to change, and the wisdom and power to take advantage of the opportunities that change creates. The 7 Habits have become so famous because they work. 


1.  Be Proactive

     Make choices and think of the consequences.


2.  Begin with the End in Mind

     Know what you want and how you are going to achieve it.


3.  Put First Things First

     Prioritize what you want to accomplish.


4.  Think Win Win

     We can both get what we want and neither of us have to lose.


5.  Seek First to Understand Then to be Understood

      Listen with your head and your heart before you speak.


6.  Synergize

     Together we can always accomplish more.


7.  Sharpen the Saw

     Live a balanced life.
