7 habits of highly effective people.

According to Covey, the way people viewed success shifted in the 1920s to what Covey calls "personality ethic" (where success is a function of personality, public image, attitudes, and behaviors).

As mentioned, these 7 habits are based on the book by Steven Covey. I am a huge fan of this book, and their is a reason that it has gone on to sell over 25 million copies. 

These 7 habits are divided into Private Victory (habit 1–3) and Public Victory (habit 4–6). 

The last habit, 7, is meant to improve all of those previous habits and sustain their effectiveness.

1. Be Proactive

Proactive people, however, recognize they have responsibility for their lives.

2. Begin with the End in Mind

Envisioning what one wants in the future (a personal mission statement) so one can work and plan towards it.

3. Put First Things First

Prioritize Quadrant II because it is at the heart of effective personal management, addressing things like building relationships, long-term planning, exercising, and preparation.

Decision Matrix

4. Think Win-Win

Commit to creating Win-Win situations that are mutually beneficial and satisfying to each party.

5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

Replace autobiographical listening with empathy.

6. Synergize

Value differences - the mental, emotional, and psychological differences between people.

7. Sharpen the Saw

Devote time to your well-being which is classified into four dimensions; Physical, Spiritual, Mental, & Emotional.
