Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Though Stephen Covey is no longer with us, he left us with a wonderful gift and wealth of knowledge. As I often times tend to feel really over-committed, I reminded myself this evening of the habits Covey shared with me many years ago. May he rest in peace.

Below I will share these 7 habits along with a brief summary of what each habit really means. Next time you are feeling “unbalanced” or stressed out, take responsibility and look at these habits as a good reminder on how you can turn things around for yourself.

1. Be proactive: Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you. Take responsibility for your life and understand that you life’s choices are exactly that- yours.

2. Begin with the end in mind: Envision what you want to achieve so that you have a clear destination in mind.

3. Put first things first: Focus on your highest priorities (say no sometimes if you need to).

4. Think win-win: How can a situation come out positive for all involved? Always strive to achieve this.

5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood: Listen, then talk. And just as important, listen for the true and deeper meaning.

6. Synergize: Use creative cooperation and the idea that “two heads are always better than one.”

7. Sharpen the saw: Take time to update your skills and to recharge your batteries. Keep physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of your life balanced.
