Publisher's Summary

Make The 7 Habits Work For You.

In this new program available exclusively on audio, Stephen Covey expands on the principles set forth in his best seller, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. In Living the 7 Habits, Covey provides valuable insights that will deepen our understanding of the habits and allow us to make them part of our daily lives.

Among the principles it shares are:

  • Why the 7 Habits are like a "spiral staircase" with many levels, and why mastering the habits at one level enables us to move on to the next
  • Why developing a mission statement can lead to empowerment
  • How using the four quadrants will help develop our minds, bodies, skills, and relationships with others

The next step on the ever-evolving road to personal and professional fulfillment, Living the 7 Habits will help us to achieve our goals and identify the commitments we can make to begin to live the 7 Habits immediately.

The habits in action

What made the experience of listening to Living the 7 Habits the most enjoyable?

Being able to hear real stories of the habits in action. I've listened to/read "The 7 Habits..." countless times. Hearing how everyday people have applied them to their situations makes me want to work harder at applying them in my life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I could relate to the father in the story called, "Because."

What about Stephen R. Covey’s performance did you like?

His kind, gentle and thorough manner in laying out the details of the habits makes for very easy listening.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Referring back to the story, "Because." Being the father of a 10-year-old daughter myself, this story made me think even more about how I must always work to improve the relationship I have with my daughter. Too many father's are absent in the lives of their daughters and it without a doubt has a detrimental effect on their growing up to be strong, confident women. The world needs more strong, male role models.

Any additional comments?

Be aware that this is an abridged version of the actual book. Not every story in the book is on this audio program. But don't let that stop you. It's a great motivator when you're feeling stuck.

Worth it to me.

It's hard to justify spending $5 on an hour long book when you can find numerous books 10 hours long for $15. However it was definitely worth it. The stories are definitely inspiring.

Don't waste your time.

I love the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, so I was very excited to get this book. What a let down. It's nothing more than a handful of stories/examples of people using the 7 habits principles in various situations. They can be encouraging, but this book offers nothing more than some nice stories. It's not deep or enlightening in any way like the original book.
