Really hard listen. Not engaging. Boring. I kept thinking about everything else in the world. It was not highly effective. I kind of feel less effective. I don't remember the second habit but I bet it wasn't wasting time listening to monotone repitious droning.
Perfect to listen to. Crystal Clear.
More than anything, this is a life changing book which will benefit every individual.
I would highly recommend this book.
Thanks Audible and of course, Covey.
Going ahead with, first things first now.
The performance was okay, given that it was narrated by the author himself but the habits don't even appear in the book, they appear hodge podge in various places in the book, only to show up later in the notes.
The thoughts and tools provided within are key components to a successful life both at work and at home. Its power comes from applicability to almost any situation and showing you how traditional education and experiences are not always the best teachers of success.
Great explanation of some key principles within the framework we call life! As the author says in the beginning, this is not only a book to be read once and placed in your library, it is a book to re-read, and study for a lifetime of growth! I chose to get this book because my son's school uses these 7 habits in the teaching methods, and behavior modification for the students, and within his Kindergarten year I knew they were on to something great!
If you have a child in the US school system I would HIGHLY recommended this book as well as the Leader in Me program for the school!
