(Seven) 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Some time ago I read the book "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Mr. Stephen Covey. A wonderful life transforming book!

Stephen R. Covey emphasises a return to principles or values in order to achieve effectiveness in our lives. 

The book is totally against the modern approach of showmanship. 

The first seven habits can be divided into two groups of three - the first group focuses on "private victory" and the second on "public victory".

Stephen Covey says "Private Victory precedes Public Victory" which really means that we have to master ourselves before we can enjoy success outside of ourselves and with others. Habit number 7 is about doing the right things to maintain these habits and continue developing.

Today I came across a webpage giving the glimpses on the book's content:

I strongly suggest all of you to read this book directly from the original text. Read and re-read it. It will definitely make a change in you, a change which will reinforce the values you believes in.
