I decided to finally read this as the teen version of this book, The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective Teen by Sean Covey, was one of the formative books of my childhood. Having read that version so many times when I was younger, I already knew and understood most of the principles of the 7 habits that Stephen R. Covey talks about. I actually think the teen version is clearer about what the 7 habits are though. In this book for adults, Covey uses a ton of personal development jargon and lists of 7 habits, 4 freedoms, major principles, etc., which tends to add confusion to his ideas rather than clarify them. I guess some jargon is expected of a self-help book (and I suspect it was necessary so that he could brand his concepts and sell them as products and workshops) but I thought it complicated his ideas-- they would have been communicated better if they were all couched in much simpler terms, without labeling them as specific principles. I doubt I would have understood everything had I not read the teen version, which I first read at 11 or 12 years old and soaked up everything-- that one was very good at distilling Covey's ideas down to its essentials.

Some of my personal takeaways from this book include when he talks about the difference between gofer and stewardship delegation-- gofer delegation means just telling people what to do where as stewardship delegation is giving someone a task but allowing for freedom and autonomy. The person is given a task with fewer guidelines, which allows them to take ownership of the work and gain personal responsibility over it, instead of following a set of instructions blindly. I also like what he says about trying to find a third way in an argument or negotiation rather than one side getting what they want or even compromise. For Covey, compromise isn't enough nor does it truly make both sides happy, and he encourages people to try to sincerely listen to and understand what the other side wants in order to come to a solution that satisfies both sides (seek to listen before speaking).

While the book is somewhat overwritten (I really think it could be half its length), the core principles covered are quite sound and extremely important and relevant, regardless of who you are, or kind of life you live, what cultural/religious/political background you're from. It's definitely a worthwhile read for anyone interested in personal management and development. (For younger people though, I recommend you just check out The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey as it's far shorter while covering all of the important points, is illustrated, and much easier to understand.)

Summary: A grab bag of good advice on how to get your life organised

Things that were good:

* Several of the ideas in this book have stuck with me and continued to be referenced throughout my career/personal life

Things that could have been better:

From memory, it comes off as a bit Christian/family-values which might turn a few people off. Perhaps he could have de-emphasized some of those elements to make the book more relatable for people that don't share his background.


Highlight: Emotional bank account is probably one of the ideas that I've got the most leverage out of. ( )

Borrowing slightly from the concepts of Quantum Mechanics, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People begins with the astute observation that people perceive the world differently, and because we view the world with our own unique "lens," it is difficult to separate the observation from the observer.

Covey says that we all have our own paradigm, which is our own map of how we perceive the world and how we think the world should be in our ideal view. Covey writes, "The way we see things is the source of the way we think and the way we act."

There is no real excellence in all this world which can be separated from right living

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor.

In more than 25 years of working with people in business, university, and marriage and family settings, I have come in contact with many individuals who have achieved an incredible degree of outward success, but have found themselves struggling with an inner hunger, a deep need for personal congruency and effectiveness and for healthy, growing relationships with other people.
