    I read this because I saw this as one of the central works in thinking about management and leadership. The content is engaging and in my opinion the advice in general enough form to be sound.
  • (5/5)
    Learned how valuable time is wasted on things that seem urgent, but not important. Now I manage my time along the principles in this book. I allocate time based on my values and goals and less on the demands of others--far, far less on those who don't value my time.

    (original review, 2004)"To learn and not to do is really not to learn. To know and not to do is really not to know.""Love is a verb. Love – the feeling – is the fruit of love the verb or our loving actions. So love her. Sacrifice. Listen to her. Empathize. Appreciate. Affirm her.""At some time in your life, you probably had someone believe in you when you didn't believe in yourself."In “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. CoveyThe above-mentioned quotes are some of the pearls of wisdom we can find in the book.There's a story, probably apocryphal, about an Amazonian tribe's reaction to a group of Westerners (possibly miners or farmers or similar) who had created a settlement close to their village some time in the 1960s. The settlers built a makeshift runway, and the tribe watched from afar in amazement as, shortly after the runway was complete, a plane arrived carrying supplies. The tribe immediately set about building a runway beside their village, believing that once it was complete, a plane would arrive on it with supplies. They had a long, fruitless wait. Obviously, there's a lot that doesn't ring true about this story, however it illustrates well the fruitlessness of adopting other people's actions in the hope of replicating their results, without really sharing or understanding their motivations. Presumably most of the rituals described above have one thing in common; they're the author's own.That's why they worked, they were what the author genuinely felt worked for them, they weren't adopted in an attempt to recreate the conditions of someone else's success. I've a creative friend who drinks whisky in the mornings when he's writing, because that's what Hunter S. Thompson did. He is not and never will be anything like Hunter S. Thompson. The overarching advice from this book should be: find your OWN rituals and routines. Forget about crappy books like these.A friend of mine used to say he could write at any time of the day or night, but there came a point - after about three hours - when he didn't achieve much more by working longer. The best time, he said, is early morning, 5 or 6am. He could look again at something that seemed hard to write the previous evening, and suddenly everything just fell into place... As for myself, I can write any time I'm awake, but nobody would want to read it. Seriously now, I have realised that my most creative and productive hours are 3 -6 am. This is when my genius will fizz and pop, worlds are created, and my art manifests itself, seemingly without effort. At these magical hours, I will become a conduit for creative forces beyond my ken. At this special time, unfortunately, I always seem to be unconscious and dribbling, stretched out amongst bottles, filth and pools of damp... But at the end, don't forget that: "quod natura non dat, Salmantica non praestat". Who could ever forget that...?LOL

    I have read this book since about 10 years ago, which is one book that is very good in uplifting terms about the personality I have ever met.Finished reading it, I bought about 6 pieces more, then I gave it to my sister & close friends.In overall, the book is very good because:* A clear systematic discussion* Writing style that is easily understood* Clarified by using the analogy, many case examples, drawing diagrams, etc.* Comprehensive coverage of our selfhoodI am sure this book will be very useful for everyone who reads it.

    I haven't finished this book yet. I want to know how he got to his position of IBM CEO, not about his mid life crisis.
  • (5/5)
    I deduct a half-star because the word paradigm makes me itch, but I would have to grant that it is in some sense the very type of a life-altering book. You could definitely trim some fat and read it in "princess bride, the good parts" mode though.
  • (4/5)
    A great book. It invites us to think deeply about our goal in life and cultivate habits that will aid us in achieving it across all our life roles.
  • (5/5)
    What can I say. This is the classic book on leading an effective life.
  • (4/5)
    I don't normally read self-help books, partly because I didn't need any help, but after I picked up The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and read through it, I realized it wasn't all just self-help.In Seven Habits, Covey doesn't give a feel-good panacea for all your troubles. Instead, he introduces habits that you must develop if you want to improve your interpersonal skills.The habits themselves make sense, but applying them to your daily life is the challenge. Though, if you're applying them just to be more effective, and not to actually be a better person, you're missing the point.Recommended for business managers and others who wish to make people feel good in their presence.
  • (5/5)
    This book is always a good one to re-read. The habits are really common sense, but sometimes you need to sit down and remember them.
  • (5/5)
    This book is simply amazing. I'm even inclined to say that I enjoyed it more than "Think and Grow Rich," which I thought was impossible to beat. I highly recommend it. Full of wisdom, insights on family values, personal leadership and so much more, this book should be required reading for all.
  • (5/5)
    Excellent book!!! A book that will change the way you work and operate in general.
  • (4/5)
    The best time management system and certainly the most publicized. There's no big secret in what Covey has to say, it's how he says it that makes it worth while.
  • (4/5)
    Great book. Learn a lot about being a better business person AND a better person in general.

    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change was a groundbreaker when it was first published in 1990, and it continues to be a business bestseller with more than 10 million copies sold. Stephen Covey, an internationally respected leadership authority, realizes that true success encompasses a balance of personal and professional effectiveness, so this book is a manual for performing better in both arenas. His anecdotes are as frequently from family situations as from business challenges. Before you can adopt the seven habits, you'll need to accomplish what Covey calls a "paradigm shift"--a change in perception and interpretation of how the world works. Covey takes you through this change, which affects how you perceive and act regarding productivity, time management, positive thinking, developing your "proactive muscles" (acting with initiative rather than reacting), and much more.

    I got this book about 15 years ago as a gift from a publisher, lend it to a friend who lost it and brought a new copy for me. Still, I didn't touch it until I am searching for important answers to life this year.In summary, the author believes that to be truly effective, our center of life must be based on timeless principles, because money, church, friends, family, work, pleasure or even self are inconsistent and unreliable. If you depend on these insecured sources as your center, you will end up reacting according to their ever changing action upon you. You feel good only when these factors are in good conditions.In time management, there are quadrants:1. Important and Urgent (Deadline-driven projects)2. Important but Not Urgent (Relationship building)3. Not Important but Urgent (Phone calls)4. Not Important and Not Urgent (Pleasant activities)We always end up busy in Quadrant 1 and 3 because these are urgents. Yet to be truly effective, we need to invest time in the important Quadrant 2 activities. In fact, by investing in Quadrant 2, we are preparing ourselves to handle future Quadrant 1 activities. For example, if we invest in building up our knowledge and upgrading our skills (Quadrant 2 activities), we can avoid making ignorance mistakes that will lead us into handling Quadrant 1 activities such as correcting those mistakes.The author gave a very good example :-Suppose you were to come upon someone in the woods working feverishly to saw down a tree and asked him "What are you doing? You look exhausted!". He replied "Can't you see? I'm sawing down this tree for over five hours!". You suggested him to take a break and sharpen that saw, but he replied "I don't have time to sharpen the saw, I'm too busy sawing!"Sharpening the saw is Quadrant 2 activity that will prepare you to work more effectively in sawing down that tree, which is a Quadrant 1 activity.

    In these days, a lot of people are wondering what Mormons' religious beliefs lead to as a philosophy of life. Read Covey. Wholesome, motivating, inspiring.
  • (3/5)
    Much of the advice is good. Unfortunately it is couched in sexist, dated, annoying terms that make me want to fling the book at the author's head, even when I agree with him. Which I don't, always; some of this also is personality-dependent, and isn't going to work for my style. The author appears to believe that's my fault.
  • (5/5)
    This book started a transformation in my life. I look at the world with a different set of eyes now thanks to that book.
  • (2/5)
    Hmmm .. not quite what I expected, but a good reminder.
  • (4/5)
    This is not a quick fix book. I will take time and focus for any of the advice given in the book to make big changes. That said I've just finished the book and noticed some positive changes in myself.

    This book does have "buzzwords" that other reviews have complained about but that is because the book made them that way. People just repeat the words instead of doing the hard work.

    This book does have one flaw the writer talks about not projecting your paradigms on others Covey forgot that not all his readers will be Christian.
  • (4/5)
    It's a classic. So many books have been based off of the core values set in this book so if you've read any productivity, self help, leadership, or anything similar you're likely to know some of the content in this book.

    I like to occasionally go "back to the basics" or hit the classics as a reminder of some of the things I can/should be doing to be a better business person or a family man and I tend to find this book helps me reset my habits. That's not a bad thing at all.
  • (5/5)
    Summary: Let's face it. Apply every true principle in this book and you can't help but be living life to it's very fullest. This book will be just as true and important 100 years from now as it is today.
  • (5/5)
    I have had this book on my reading list for a while. This books has been a valuable catalyst in my personal development. On one hand there is very little that is shocking. As the author freely admits, he does not consider the principles that these habits embody to be his, but universal. While I think most people will find an innate understanding of each of these habits, Stephen Covey is blessed with an ability to clearly explain them in a way that will help you grow if you chose to follow them.You do not have to be unhappy with your life, job or marriage to find benefit in this book. What the book helped me with was to make clear to where I needed to improve. Although Stephen Covey is a religious man, he had written the book in such a way that can be approached and understood by anyone from the atheist, to the agnostic and the religious man.I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a direction or approach to give their life more mean and purpose.
  • (5/5)
    There is much more to this book and the series of books than I first thought. I thought it was a bundle of cliches and ignored the work required to develop all of the ideas into actual habits, used daily and in all circumstances. I have a lot of work to do on this package.
  • (5/5)
    If I was asked to recommend one self help book to improve your whole life this would be it. Its easy to read and the suggestions are not hard to implement. It deserves a couple of reads one, to get and overview and another slower read to implement change.
  • (4/5)
    This is a highly effective book for getting your life turned around and on a path toward professional and personal success. This is certainly no a cure-all; no promised panacea here. You have to make a sincere and sustained effort. You have to apply what Covey teaches. But even failed attempts, even imperfect applications should result in improvement.
  • (5/5)
    Wonderful! Very practical, and useful, personally applicable.
  • (4/5)
    Great book with valuable, motivating info. A little heavy on the case studies, but otherwise very helpful.
