In taking his advice, you’ll discover how the priceless wisdom of the 7 Habits still holds true after twenty-five years.

All over the placeI can't stay focused on this book, it's all over the place. We have the seven habits, the circles of concern/influence, the p/pc balance, there's no control/direct control/indirect control, private victories/public victories, proactive focus/reactive focus, genetic/psychic/environmental determinism... And I'm still on Habit One. It's confusing, and the wording/sentence structures have me reading almost every sentence several times before I can even somewhat comprehend them. I'm fairly intelligent, but surely the following quote could have been worded a little less...snobby? "The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person." It's almost like he's trying to make us feel inferior.I wanted to love this book, I REALLY wanted to. I once told someone "I will never stop trying to be a better mom" and I recognize that that means I have to never stop trying to be a better PERSON first, but after reading just 22% of this book, I still don't completely understand what he was trying to get across. I won't finish it. And I pray I'm never asked to define "paradigm" for anyone. I've come across it a hundred times so far, and still couldn't give even a vague example.2Good Precursor to Understanding the Mechanism of Thought Emotion and BehaviorEven though I am not in one hundred percent agreement with some of the terms used to attempt an explanation of human emotion and behavior change this book is still headed in the right direction. As an example, the author uses the term paradigm shift when he experiences a change in perception given a specific circumstance. In my mind, a paradigm shift occurs when there is a permanent change in emotion and behavior which does not occur with most people in a single change of perception. Children can experience a paradigm shift if caught early in a behavior that does not work. A 40 or 50-year-old adult, however, is a very different animal. The Way We See the Problem is the Problem. I agree with this one hundred percent but being told how to reframe it and take another approach without revealing the mechanism of the thought process behind it will only work with some people. Something I have found to be consistent with all people is teaching them the mechanism of how thought emotion and behavior work as opposed to trying to tell them what to do which I think would integrate perfectly with the principals of 7 Habits. An example of one of those mechanisms is our internal dialogue which runs at approximately one thousand to twelve hundred words per minute which is about four times faster then we can speak. This internal dialogue is generated in large part by our self-questioning Following is the mechanism.ExampleQuestion: Do we ask ourselves questions?Answer: YesQuestion: Does the subconscious work on those questions when we are not consciously involved.Answer: YesExample: If you see someone you know or an actor you are familiar with and ask yourself What is their name? You may not get an answer right away, but in an hour or two or maybe even the next day their name will pop into your head as clear as day.Internal dialogue is the first and most important thing we can use to change any circumstance. Getting back to The Way We See the Problem is the Problem. the first two questions need to be What can I learn from this and How can I use this to move more quickly toward my objectives? Now that you understand that you ask questions and the subconscious will work on those questions when you are not consciously involved How important is the structure of the questions you ask yourself? The structure is extremely important because if you ask yourself Why can't I resolve this issue what do you think the results will be? The result will be negative because the question is in a negative context.The 7 habits make perfect sense but for most consistent implementation will be an issue. There are many moving parts when initiating change or causing a paradigm shift especially if a programmed pattern is 10, 20 or 30 years old. Internal dialogue especially in the form questions, however, is the absolute foundation for initiating and maintaining this shift. Following are some of the questions I use for each of the 7 Habits.Habit 1: Be ProactiveWhat action can I take every day to move as quickly as possible toward my objective?Habit 2: Begin with the End in MindEverything we do in life produces a result, so the key question for Habit 2 is What result do I want to produce? Habit 3: Put First Things FirstWithin the FEF process, there are two keywords which determine one's objectives and define what needs to be put first, and they are Absolute Must, so the key question for Habit 3 is What are my Absolute Musts or what are my Absolute Musts for today?Habit 4: Think Win/WinThe Win/Win scenario can be accomplished if one has the ability to use every life experience good or bad. This can be done with the two key questions I mentioned earlier.What can I learn from this? andHow can I use this to move more quickly toward my objectives?Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be UnderstoodHow can I make sure I have a comprehensive understanding of the people I serve and the objectives I believe will serve them?How can I make sure I am communicating my services in the best way possible?Habit 6: SynergizeIn the days of social media, there are many questions regarding Habit 6.Will social media create the synergistic relationships I need to achieve my objectives?What do I need to do to create the synergistic personal relationships that will move me quickly toward my objectives?Habit 7: Sharpen the SawIn this chapter, Covey reiterates the importance of physical-spiritual mental and social/emotional. I agree on the context but not the order and everything that is included. How we feel about everything in our lives will determine whether we move toward them or not so for me emotion is the most important and this encompasses the mind or what Covey refers to as mental. When establishing objectives in Functional Emotional Fitness , there are four categories which cover all human objectives and they are Love, Health, Wealth and Self-Image which I feel clearly defines the full spectrum of what one needs to keep sharp. You can, however, use Coeys or your own within the context of the following question.How can I make sure my Love, Health, Wealth and Self-Image are clearly defined and operating in the 90 plus percent range?If you need to generate more questions to make sure you are keeping the saw as sharp as possible simply ask yourself What questions do I need to ask myself .about Habit 1 or 2 or 3 or 7? Given the current science on the influence of the gut over our thought processes keeping the saw sharp might need to be addressed first. Whatever the case the 7 Habits is a rock solid foundation.5Must read for future generations. Encyclopedia of profound knowledge.Change is hard. How can I change? I suggest two practices for making changes in your life. The first is to follow your conscience. I speak a lot about the idea that between stimulus (what happens to us) and response (what we do about it) is a space to choose, and what we do with that space ultimately determines our growth and happiness. In this space lie the four human endowments of conscience, imagination, self-awareness, and independent will. Of the four, conscience is the governing one. Often, when we are not at peace in our lives, it is because we are living lives in violation of our conscience and deep down we know it. We can tap into conscience simply by asking ourselves questions and pausing to hear the answer. For example, try asking yourself the following questions: What is the most important thing I need to start doing in my personal life that would have the greatest positive impact? Think deeply. What comes to mind? Now, ask yourself another question: What is the most important thing that I need to start doing in my professional life that would have the greatest positive impact? Again, pause, think, and go deep inside yourself to find the answer. If you re like me, you ll recognize those most important things by listening to your conscience that voice of wisdom, self-awareness, and common sense within you. Another great question to ask yourself is: What is life now asking of me? Pause. Think carefully. You may sense that you ve been unfocused and need to be far more careful with the way you spend your time. Or you may decide that you need to start eating better and exercising because you re constantly tired. Or you may sense that there is a key relationship you need to repair. Whatever it is, there is great strength and power in following through with a change that is endorsed by your conscience. Without deep conviction, you won t have the strength to follow through with your goals when the going gets tough. And conviction comes through conscience. We all have three different lives: a public life, a private life, and an inner life. Our public life is what others observe. Our private life is what we do when we are alone. Our inner life is that place we go to when we really want to examine our motives and our deepest desires. I highly recommend developing this inner life. This is the place where our conscience can be most instructive because while here we are in the best frame of mind to listen. A second key to change is to change your role. As I ve always said, if you want to make incremental changes in your life, change your behaviors. But if you want to make significant change, work on your paradigms, the way in which you see and interpret the world. And the best way to change your paradigm is to change your role. You may get promoted to be a new project manager at work. You may become a new mother or a new grandfather. You may take on a new community responsibility. Suddenly your role has changed and you see the world differently and better behaviors naturally flow out of the changed perspective. Sometimes role changes are external events, such as a change in a job responsibility. But other times we can change our role just by changing our mindset or our perception of a situation. Let s say, for example, that you are seen as a control freak at work and that you know you need to start trusting others and letting go. Well, perhaps you could see yourself differently and redefine your role from one of supervisor to one of advisor. With this change of role, this mental shift, you would start to see yourself as an advisor to your team members who are empowered to make decisions and seek your counsel when doing so instead of being the one who has to own everything and constantly follow up. I m often asked, Which of the 7 Habits is the most important? My answer is: The most important habit is the one you are having the most difficult time living. Use your endowments of self-awareness and conscience to help you sense which habit you may need to focus on. Often the best way to change is to pick the one thing, the single habit, and to make small commitments to yourself related to that habit and keep them. Little by little your discipline and self-confidence will increase.5Good for organizational functions, death for our species.As part of an executive coaching program, I am reading 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. It's one of the most widely read books of the last 30-years (30 Million Copies sold). It's also quite possibly the proximate cause of the downfall of our species (not kidding.)The first Habit is Pro-activity. In the section, Covey creates a basic schema to outline how to target your energies based upon your Sphere of Influence (What you can control), and your Sphere of Concern (What you can't control but are aware of). A core of the discussion is that we need to focus our energies on changing things within our Sphere of Influence and to learn to deal with the things in our Sphere of Concern because we do not have direct power to change or impact them.This is a very WASPy philosophy and echoes the Serenity Prayer that we all know:God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,Courage to change the things I can,And wisdom to know the difference.And the general concept is embedded in American Christianity: The idea that we should impact what we can touch and to trust God to take care of the rest.Every leader in Western culture in the last 30 years has either read and studied this book, or been guided by people who have (This is not a theory, this is a fact). And really, it's great advice when it comes to navigating your various lanes, tasks, and duties in a military or corporate organizational environment.But, look at it from another angle:Every leader in modern western culture (The WASPy ones especially since Covey and modern Christianity are philosophically symbiotic) is focused on changing the things that are under their direct control. We leave the things outside of our control to others or to faith.What happens when the problem is increased global temperatures? What happens when it's large portions of the population who do not have access to adequate healthcare, food, or housing? What happens when it's desperate immigrant families locked up without due process?The vast majority of our corporate and financial leadership was raised on Covey. They are trained, conditioned, and rewarded for focusing on things within their own Sphere of Influence and do not believe they should even try to impact these things that are so huge that they are not in ANY ONE PERSON's SPHERE OF INFLUENCE!And so, those who have the power do nothing, because Covey told them to.1Interesting.I stopped reading books after graduating from college. Somebody suggested that this book is worth reading. I bought a few books that I believe to answer the questions in my mind. So, I started with this one. I should have found this book long time ago . The content is quite interesting. I just started reading and got some ideas that helped me at work yesterday.5Absolutely phenomenalI rarely if ever leave reviews on purchases, but I felt the need to share this one. I've spent the past several years trying to figure out what I was doing wrong when it came to happiness. I had every reason to be happy, but yet felt this deep hollowness inside. I've tried all the positive thinking quick fixes, meditation, law of attraction, etc. Nothing seemed to click or "cure" this aching inside. It wasn't until I read the 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, that the fog finally lifted. This book taught me why all those quick fixes don't work and how my happiness depended on my own internal work and efforts. I encourage anyone who is struggle with a similar situation or everyone for that matter to read this book. It'll change your perspective on life!5This book will change the way you look at life.This is, hands down, one of the best and most powerful books I've ever read in my life. I have recommended it to countless people. The fact that you're seeking it out says volumes about your level of self-awareness as it is and this book builds on that. Very seldom do books really make me get involved when I read them, but this book made me break out my highlighter and notepad. There was so much good stuff I just had to take notes I could quickly reference. You know how some books make you say things out loud? You'll read something and say, "YES! EXACTLY!" or read something profound and just sit dumbfounded, going "Wow," and you have to take a moment to reflect on it? This book is full of moments like that.There is a lot of practical stuff in here, too. Challenges for you. Ways you can start to shift your thinking by taking an emotional inventory of your life and what you're doing/feeling every day. Just writing about it makes me want to go back and read it again. If you're here looking for a book that will help you harness that little spark inside of you that's saying, "You can be better" then this book is it. You're not an animal. Life doesn't condition you like a dog. This book is about the untouchable part of your human spirit that no one besides you controls. This book is about carrying sunny weather with you where ever you go, learning how much a proactive attitude benefits you, and really how sad and wasteful it is to walk through life allowing things to ruin your day. Things don't ruin your day. YOU ruin your day. You are always in control.Seriously, read this book. You won't regret it.5I don't understand the popularity of this book. It ...I don't understand the popularity of this book. It is in corporate-eze and makes little sense. The popularity of these books that repackage common sense and classism makes me queasy. Act compassionately and die knowing you didn't fleece your neighbors. It really is that simple.1Balloon JuiceI finally decided to read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I had purchased it some time ago and recently determined that now was the time to read this self-help classic. What a COLOSSAL disappointment! I am amazed that this mediocrity is so popular. I found it to be little more than 1980s managerial balloon juice.From paradigm shift, to think Win/Win, to (ugh) synergy, there is no empty self-help clich left unturned. I should have stopped reading the first time I saw the word synergy. (I get countless business proposals in my email every day and, if I bother to skim any of them at all, I delete them as soon as the word synergy makes an appearance.) No word represents the trite emptiness of this book better than synergy except maybe the verb form of the word: synergize, or the adjective synergistic, or the adverb synergistically. But they are all here. (The author also repeatedly refers to things that are learned as learnings. )The book doesn t even try to live up to its title. There is no argument at all to support the idea that these are seven actual habits that real people have used anywhere in the world to achieve real success. In fact, these seven so-called habits appear to be nothing more than seven things that the author thinks are really good ideas, with weird examples of how they helped him deal with his kid being bad at baseball and also helped his kid learn the value of cleaning up the yard. The book s title doesn t match the book itself, but then no one would spend their money on a book called, The Seven Things Some Random Guy Thinks are Really Nifty-Keen. Here s some useful self-help/time management advice for you: do not waste your precious time with this book. There are dozens and dozens, if not hundreds, of better self-help books out there. Synergize your win/win paradigm shifts with some of those.2If you are an intellectual, don t waste your time on this bookBought this book for my class, and it was painful to read. Reading the book is like reading Instagram inspirational posts. Don t really have to use your brain when you read it because basically the author is just going circle and repeating himself while making up new words to make it seem fancy. His argument is very poorly supported. The 7 habits mentioned are what HE THINKS effective people have. He even used bible character to support his points of view, so....Good for people who are lost and need directions. But if you are intelligent, you probably already knew most of the things the author says.1
