The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
This one is probably a no-brainer to you. Likely, Covey was something you read for a High School class as I did, before turning in your report and then promptly filing the lessons away in your mind.
If it’s been a while, or if you’ve gone through life and never quite gotten to reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, it’s time to dust this one off for a fresh read.
One of my colleagues describes entrepreneurship as the greatest personal development journey you’ll ever go on. And for that reason, I recommend revisiting Covey for yourself every couple of years just to keep these lessons fresh and in the front of mind.
Simply put, they’re the right lessons. They work. From understanding goal setting and the personal development process, to understanding how to build richer, deeper connections with others, there’s simply no better resource I’ve found than Covey’s 7 lessons.
As we go through life and our perspective changes, so to do the ways we understand how to make effective, positive change happen in our lives. Take another look and you might be surprised what different takeaways you’ll find now than the last time you gave it a good read.
