The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ is one of the phenomenal books that changed people's lives for the better. The book sold over 25 million copies, and if this were to be compared to a county, it means the entire population of Lagos, Nigeria would have bought it. The original seven habits discussed in the book are:

1. Be Proactive
2. Begin with the End in Mind
3. Put First Things First
4. Think Win-Win
5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
6. Synergize
7. Sharpen the Saw

The first three serve your own independence, so that you may “win in private,” as Covey put it. The second three aim to shift your focus to interdependence. When you strive for cooperation instead of competition, you’ll also “win in public” and find worldly success. The last habit serves your own renewal so that you’ll never burn out or over-extend yourself.

Vital Nuggets from the Book

“Be Proactive: Take responsibility for your life; you are in control of your actions and reactions”

“Begin with the End in Mind: Clarify your values and set clear goals to align your actions with your principles”

“Put First Things First: Prioritize important, not just urgent tasks. Focus on what truly matters”

“Think Win-Win: seek mutual benefit in relationships and collaborations. A win for others is a win for you”

“Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood; Listen actively and empathetically before expressing your thoughts. Communication is a two ways street”
