7 Habits of Highly Effective People : Powerful Lessons in Personal
According to Steven R. Covey, to live with security and wisdom,
and to have the power to take advantages of the opportunities
that change creates, we need fairness, integrity, honesty and
human dignity. Quite a tall order when you consider that most
of us live our lives in a permanent state of flux, questioning
our ideals and values and fighting a daily battle with the lack
of self-confidence that stops us from taking risks of any kind.
But, in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Covey manages
to make it sound as if changing the way we look at ourselves
and the world around us so that we can become more successful
both personally and professionally an absolute doddle. He defines
the "habits" as "the intersection of knowledge,
skill and desire" and states that the "Seven Habits"
of the title are not mutually exclusive, but rather when developed
together help to form a well-rounded, sensitive, confident and
effective human being.
