The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey

Due to the dynamism of the world we live in today, it is common to arrive at the end of a long working day with the feeling of not having done absolutely anything productive.

Worse than the feeling of never having enough time, is compromising our leisure time to finish uncompleted tasks.

In the book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” Stephen Covey illustrates how the feeling of “lack of time” is more associated to how we spend our time, than to the amount of hours we have to complete them.

Stephen Covey discusses the importance of questioning our own paradigms, changing our convictions in order to interpret everyday situations better, and have a more efficient response towards them.


The author encourages us to develop 7 essential habits, which will enable us to become more productive:

1. Be Proactive
2. Begin With the End in Mind
3. Put First Things First
4. Think Win-Win
5. Seek First To Understand, Then to Be Understood
6. Synergize
7. Sharpen The Saw

This book takes us into a renewal journey towards growth, and continue development, enabling us to improve our business performance and our daily relationships with people.
