“The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People By Dr. Stephen Covey”
When I first saw this book, I was scared it would just give me a list of things to do in order to succeed in today’s competitive workplace. After reading this book, I realized that I had been wrong all along.
To succeed in today’s competitive environment, this book presents attractive, practical, and wonderful suggestions on how to win our own battles. It focuses on the fundamental paradigms. Learning how to communicate well, seem nice on the outside, and learn a myriad of techniques to impress others isn’t a long-term approach. You must improve your character in order to improve your life and your relationships. You need to have a purpose for your existence.
The first three self-improvement habits are so motivating and doable that anyone may achieve a better version of themselves by following them.
For the public victory, the next three habits are equally fantastic. We can gain a better sense of who we should collaborate with by studying the principles of public triumph. We should only get into a transaction with a person if it is mutually beneficial, or a win-win situation.
In the final habit, it explains how we might rejuvenate our bodily, spiritual, mental, and social components of life..
It’s a must-read for anyone who doesn’t want to read a lot of self-help books but yet wants a book that will inspire them, drive them to improve, and answer a lot of their questions. This is a work of art in and of itself.
Thanks to this book, my life has been transformed.
Let’s take a look at each of the seven habits briefly, but I’ll admit that my description is a poor substitute for reading the original.
Habit 1 By Dr. Stephen Covey – Be Proactive.
A situation’s outcome is strongly influenced by our reaction to it. As a result, we have a choice: We can either sit back and let things happen to us, or we may do something about it. We have the option of stepping out of our comfort zone and responding in a way that will benefit us both emotionally and professionally. Be a cause rather than a byproduct.
Habit 2 By Dr. Stephen Covey– Begin with the End in Your Mind.
Self-leadership is a term used by Dr. Covey to describe this tendency. You won’t go astray if you stay focused on your vision and objectives. As you make your way to the top, remembering where you’re going can help you operate more efficiently.
Habit 3 By Dr. Stephen Covey– Put First Things First.
In his third habit, Dr. Covey discusses personal management. He refers to it as “mental creation” in Habit 2 and it is a continuation of that. We need to be organized and focused in order to develop the physical product in order to achieve our end goals.
Habit 4 By Dr. Stephen Covey– Think Win-Win.
We have to work together. When it comes to interpersonal leadership, Dr. Covey refers to this behavior as one of the most important. As Dr. Covey asserts, success will come to those who keep in mind that there is plenty for everyone and provide them with an opportunity to win.
Habit 5 By Dr. Stephen Covey– Seek First to Understand, and Then to Be Understood.
In order to succeed, you must be able to communicate. First and foremost, Dr. Covey advises, we should contribute to others. Build and sustain positive relationships in both our business and personal life before we expect them to give to us..
Habit 6 By Dr. Stephen Covey– Synergize.
Developing creative co-operation is the goal of this habit, and we should strive to recognize and appreciate the contributions of others. It is said by Dr. Covey that the whole is larger than the sum of its parts.
Habit 7 By Dr. Stephen Covey– Sharpen The Saw.
The first time I read the book, many years ago, this practice had a profound effect on me. Dr. Stephen Covey refers to it as the habit of self-renewal. All other habits will be strengthened if you develop this one properly. Our ability to learn, perform, and grow will be hampered, and we will eventually burn out if we don’t take care of ourselves and recharge.
This is a book that I will gladly give as a present to a friend or recommend as a resource to any small business owner with whom I have the pleasure of working. Integrity and solid morals are the cornerstones of the seven habits. Reading this book will be beneficial to everyone, and I strongly recommend it.
