The Divine Center is the unalloyed gold that is presented in diluted, yet still powerful form in Covey's fabulously successful "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and in his less widely-known, "Principle Centered Leadership"Principle-Centered Leadership.
My wife and I were given this book shortly after we were married. We read it and have applied it as consistently as we can. That was more than 31 years and five children ago and we are still together and still going strong.
One result of reading this book is that I decided that when I retire from my job, I want to go home to the the only wife I have ever had and my children. I did that.
I didn't make my job the center of my life. Good thing too. It would have made for a rough ride. I went through layoffs, downsizing, and mergers galore. But instead of being beaten, I thrived and have gone on to teach others how to do the same in my own book: Fire Yourself: Get The Job You Want A No BS Guide. That probably wouldn't have happened without understanding where I need to be centered.
I didn't make my family the center of my life. Good thing on that front too. Children go through lots of ups and downs before they hit their own stride.Read more ›
Trying to tell people about the 7 habits when he's rally using another language conveying biblical principles.
They can think and judge what they will.
I disagree with their negativity around the issue.
This is an incredible, incredible book! I just finished reading it last night. What I love about Stephen Covey is that he is deep rooted in Biblical studies - well over ten years before the 7 habits came out
- then Boom! 7 habits gets super successful. This book contains all of the 7 habits.
Parts of this book are actually in the 7 habits and Principle centered leadership.
It just goes to show that the same principles are relevant here - in the early 80s when this book was published - 89 when 7 habits came out - and 2008!
I recommend this book to anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the 7 habits. I'm happy he discusses Christ centeredness. Again his religion is his business, and he states that the 7 habits are shown in all 6 major religions. I'm really excited and happy about this book. Incredible read!
This is a powerful and life changing book. If you liked Seven-Habits of Highly Effective People, you'll love this book. If you're happy with who you are - then don't read it. But if you want to keep learning and growing, to establish the correct "center" in your life, then there's nothing better in print - save the scriptures.
In essence, I would say this - for those of you who have a spiritual 'bent' in the Christian faith (regardless of the particular religion you observe, given that this book makes references to the Latter Day Saints), this book would be an excellent buy, as it would be for those who have studied Dr Covey's works in great depth, as I have. For those with no spiritual motive it may be worth reading just for curiosity's sake.
Stephen Covey whose talents include teaching aspects of life as well as business makes
this a wonderful directory for developing and maintaining the happiness that having a
Divine Center in your life can give you.
