The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

I just bought this book online from Amazon. Macam tak sabar nk tunggu buku ni sampai. So boleh share dengan yang lain. Let's check the summary and why I found this book is interesting and must read.



The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, first published in 1989, is a self-help book written by Stephen R. Covey. It has sold over 15 million copies in 38 languages since first publication, which was marked by the release of a 15th anniversary edition in 2004. Covey argues that effectiveness is achieved by aligning oneself to what he calls "true north" principles of a character ethic that he believes to be universal and timeless.

The chapters are dedicated to each of the habits, which are represented by the following imperatives:
Habit 1: Be Proactive: Principles of Personal Choice
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind: Principles of Personal Vision
Habit 3: Put First Things First: Principles of Integrity & Execution


Independence to Interdependence
Habit 4: Think Win/Win: Principles of Mutual Benefit
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood: Principles of Mutual Understanding
Habit 6: Synergize: Principles of Creative Cooperation


Continual Improvement
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw: Principles of Balanced Self-Renewal of body

Once I finish reading this book, I will share the contents and my personal comments.

Enjoy!
