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.
I have listened to this book twice now and there are so many helpful truth to absorb. This is a book that needs to be read multiple times.
Phenomenal material. Already listened to it twice and about to listen to it again. As a United States citizen, I believe our country would benefit by integrating the teaching of these principles into the public education system. However, I realize that this idea is farfetched and it is unlikely to ever get the support it deserves. I recommend it to everyone and hope that this review is helpful.
Pretty good, a little long but worth the read! Found each of the 7 habits useful - Stephan does a great job telling the reader how to improve your life in many different areas!
I feel this book is a classic and timeless. It's a great read and if implemented honestly, could actually work. I loved most his stance on Primary success: Focusing on the inner-self (character) rather than Secondary success: the superficial (personality). The narrator was also good. It's worth the read if your like me and struggle with real change.
Yes because I have to to make it work i think. I did a quick run-through and now will go back through each habit deliberately
If I implement habit one alone, effectively, my life will be brighter. Being Proactive. We have a choice as humans that animals do not. We can pick ourselves up and even DECIDE to be happy (that one knocked me off my feet). But we can consciously choose these things and decide to rule our circumstances and not the other way around, we can WILL things!
The rest of the book gets even better. It will change your life if you are open to it. It has profound wisdom that most self help books lack. haven't done all it recommends yet but will slowly integrate them into my life, and I know I will see the change.
