The book opens with a clarification of what number of people who have accomplished a high level of outward achievement still wind up battling with: an internal requirement for creating personal adequacy and developing strong associations with other individuals.

Bunch trusts the manner in which we see the world is wholly founded without anyone else’s opinion in the mix. With the end goal to change in any given circumstance, we should improve ourselves, and with the end goal to improve ourselves, we should have the capacity to alter the way that we see the world around us.

In order to concentrate more than 200 years of writing on the idea of "accomplishment," Covey distinguished a necessary change in the manner in which that people have characterized accomplishment after some time.

In prior occasions, the establishment of progress rested upon character ethic (things like trustworthiness, lowliness, constancy, balance, boldness, equity, persistence, industry, straightforwardness, humility, and the Golden Rule). Be that as it may, beginning around the 1920s, the manner in which individuals saw achievement moved to what Covey calls "identity ethic" (where achievement is an element of identity, clear picture, states of mind and practices).

Nowadays, individuals search for the easy way to deal with everything. They see a fruitful individual, group, or association and ask, "How would you do it? Show me your strategies!" But these "alternate routes" that we search for, planning to spare time and exertion and still accomplish the coveted outcome, are essentially bandages that will yield here and now arrangements; they don't address the the problem that lies under it all.

"The manner in which we see the issue is the issue," Covey composes. We should enable ourselves to experience perspective changes - to change ourselves in a general sense and not merely adjust our demeanors and practices at first glance level - with the end goal to accomplish genuine change.

That is the place the seven propensities for exceedingly viable individuals come in:

Habits 1, 2, and three are centered around self-dominance and moving from reliance to freedom.

Habits 4, 5, and six are centered around creating cooperation, joint effort, and relational abilities, and moving from freedom to reliance.

Habits 7 is centered around persistent development and change and exemplifies the various inclinations.
