I had to read this book for a graduate level class and it was extremely painful to get through. The majority of the examples are family oriented, i.e. my son... And, every habit I had heard before. This seemed to be very elementary and frustrating at best.
This is really superb book and I already listen/read this book from cover to cover multiple time. Stephen Covey is a true role model, intelligent principled person and it was a privilege to listen to his voice throughout the book. I wish I ll manage to apply habits from that book.
I didn't know what to expect, but I think it is a very good book, and the habits are something I am trying to implement into my own life, but having said that, it's very hard to do actually.
This book came at a perfect time for me. I wish I had read it sooner, but after only a week I can already see meaningful changes in myself. I am excited to continue building the 7 habits in myself for the rest of my life.
If you really want to become a leader at home, community at work, this book will guide you thoroughly.
Working with inside out. Happiness is within ourselves, not what surrounds us.
