I have read the book already years aho and now listening to it again reminded of fundamentals as well as gave realisations of some basic flaws that i still have in my everyday life. Highly recommend to anyone and everyone.
Ps. Listen with 3x speed
I loved listening to this book and it came highly recommended by many friends. I already try and better myself on a daily basis so it was really great knowing that I already function on most of the habits, but now that I am aware of them I can really work towards them in a more concise manner. It's basically taking what we already know and fine tuning it.
I loved the section about emotional bank accounts, and there were so many great quotes to take from this. I took notes the whole listen.
The narrator can sound a bit mundane at times, so make sure you aren't tired while listening. It requires your full focus but is so worth getting through! Two thumbs up for sure.
A must read for anyone who wants to fine tune their own life and approach to all things.
Excellent content, but I would have grasped the overall concept better if the 7 concepts had been presented in a more concise fashion. A bit of a monotone performance so after 13 hours I struggled to see the overall picture. Usually I like unabridged versions to get all the details, but in this instance an abridged version would have suited me better. However, good common sense habits well worth a read (sorry listen).
As a Christian, I found this book to be extremely helpful and inspiring. The author focuses on Principle-Centered habits. His transparency brings about a strong feelings of authentic concern for his readers, to help them overcome daily struggles and become highly effective people.
The book was very boring to me. I am not one to read much, and I assure you I would not have been able to keep focused on reading this one. Luckily it came in audio format.
Don't get me wrong, the story line was well put together and the infromation is very valid. For me, however, it's hard to stay focused since I have a lot of things going on in my mind for work.
Covey did help me understand why some of my strengths work well. Likewise, he helped me to understand why some of my skills did not work well and what I could do to improve upon them. Simple put, the habits work.
That is all for now.
