When this book was published in 1990, it set the stage for a new thought on personal development. Since then, barrages of books have been written following a similar pattern, but with different terminology, and, frankly, they are all helpful in one way or another.
One of the obvious lessons in the book is how the principles can be applied to work, home, and family – all parts of personal growth. However, like all determinants of change, the seven habits are easier to read about than they are to adopt.
I encourage reading the book, if you haven’t already. And, if you have read it, maybe review it and make a post-it note reminder of the habits to develop:
If you don’t have time to read the book, listen to the audiobook version where Covey covers the habits while speaking to an audience. Steven Covey passed away in 2012, but left the world with some good habits to live by.
