Why to read ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’?

The entire premise of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is that most people deal with the problems in their life in a scattershot fashion, and this scattershot fashion leads to disillusionment and disorder. Covey’s answer to this is that to be a truly effective person, you need to learn to solve personal and professional problems with an integrated and principle-centred approach. In other words, the decisions made, both personally and professionally, should come from the same core set of values and ideas. The book is about developing that core set of values to the point where it’s easy to draw solutions to problems from them.

Excerpts: “Make small commitments and keep them. Be a light, not a judge. Be a model, not a critic. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem.”
