"Voice is unique personal significance—that is revealed as we face our greatest challenges and that makes us equal to them.“--Dr. Stephen R. Covey

Habits have a tremendous gravity pull .

our freedom takes on a whole new dimension .Lift off takes a lot of effort. but once we break out of the gravity pull.

Ready for take off ? .

Habit 1: Be proactive “You are respons-able: able to choose your respons!” .

but not all of them fall into our circle of influence Circle of influence .Circle of Concern We have a wide range of concerns.

The negative energy generated by that focus causes the circle of influence to shrink” . causing the circle of influence to increase Reactive people focus their effort in the circle of concern.“Proactive people focus their efforts in their circle of influence.

“Anytime we think the problem is out there. that thought is the problem” .

You can choose your language Reactive: I must If only They made me If I had Proactive: I prefer I will I choose I can be .

Habit 2: Begin with the end in mind .


The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are. what you are about and what you value .

Habit 3: Put first things first .


The key to time management is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule but to schedule your priorities .

non important matters.It’s almost impossible to say NO to the popularity of urgent. if you don’t have a bigger YES burning inside .

“Things which matter most should never be at the mercy of things which matter least” Goethe .

Habit 4: Think Win/win .

“You can only achieve win/win solutions with win/win processes” .

It’s not your way or my way. it’s a better way .

then to be understood .Habit 5: Seek first to understand.


to really deeply understand another human being first” . but often we fail to take the time to diagnose.“We have such a tendency to fix things up with good advice.

Reading your own autobiography into other people’s lives is nót (even close to) listening .

Habit 6: Synergize “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” .

we constantly suffer from a shortage of data” .“When we are left to our own experiences.

“The person who is truly effective has the humility to recognize his own perceptual limitations and to appreciate the rich resources available through interaction with the hearts and minds of other human beings” .

In order to have influence. you have to open yourself up to bé influenced .

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw .

love. play. meditate … . write. exercise. relax.Read. get involved.

“Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things … I am tempted to think … there are no little things” Bruce Barton .
