The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People: BOOK REVIEW (by Stephen Covey)

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People: BOOK REVIEW (by Stephen Covey)

In his 1989 novel, Stephen Covey explores why some people are effective and others are not by stating the top 7 habits of highly effective people.

Stephen breaks down these habits into three types. Namely: Private victories, Public victories and the outline of how the public and private victories can be effective. Covey claims that if practiced, these habits can change human intercations from being dependent to independent and interdependent. Let us explore some of the ideas in this book.

Cover states the following:

- Humans should be proactive than reactive, simply meaning that thinking critically before speaking and responding is very important to avoid conflict. Humans should normalise listening for understanding rather than applying logic and just responding.

- Humans should always think of a win/win situation. That is, should want everyone around them to have a piece of the pie. In that way, effective and highly beneficial relationships can be established.

- Humans should collaborate more with others, because two or more brains are better than one. When different people with different experiences come together, amazing results can be produced.

Thank you for reading.
