The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People was originally written by the late Stephen Covey in 1989 and is still a best seller. A very worthwhile, useful manual for self-improvement.
Covey advises: “Private Victory precedes Public Victory. Algebra comes before calculus.” First we must master ourselves, then we can achieve outward success.
Much of what you find in this book has been distilled from philosophy over the ages, from Aristotle and Cicero and many more since. There are references to psychology and modern scientific discoveries. Covey presents a can-do program of easy-looking steps calling for self-discipline.
The key message from 7 Habits is that you are what you habitually do, so adopt productive habits. And understand that you have the ability to improve your habits and your life.
