The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change was a groundbreaker when it was first published in 1990, and it continues to be a business bestseller with more than 10 million copies sold. Stephen Covey, an internationally respected leadership authority, realizes that true success encompasses a balance of personal and professional effectiveness, so this book is a manual for performing better in both arenas. His anecdotes are as frequently from family situations as from business challenges. Before you can adopt the seven habits, you'll need to accomplish what Covey calls a "paradigm shift"--a change in perception and interpretation of how the world works. Covey takes you through this change, which affects how you perceive and act regarding productivity, time management, positive thinking, developing your "proactive muscles" (acting with initiative rather than reacting), and much more. This isn't a quick-tips-start-tomorrow kind of book. The concepts are sometimes intricate, and you'll want to study this book, not skim it. When you finish, you'll probably have Post-it notes or hand-written annotations in every chapter, and you'll feel like you've taken a powerful seminar by Covey. --Joan Price

There is a lot of practical stuff in here, too. Challenges for you. Ways you can start to shift your thinking by taking an emotional inventory of your life and what you're doing/feeling every day. Just writing about it makes me want to go back and read it again. If you're here looking for a book that will help you harness that little spark inside of you that's saying, "You can be better" then this book is it. You're not an animal. Life doesn't condition you like a dog. This book is about the untouchable part of your human spirit that no one besides you controls. This book is about carrying sunny weather with you where ever you go, learning how much a proactive attitude benefits you, and really how sad and wasteful it is to walk through life allowing things to ruin your day. Things don't ruin your day. YOU ruin your day. You are always in control.
Seriously, read this book. You won't regret it.
As we get older we get introspective or at least I have. You start asking what you have done right, what you have done wrong and what you can do to make your life and your families' life better. That's where this book helps. I've read this book well over a dozen times. I listen to the audio version, on a regular basis, and diligently work to apply these principles in my life. The 7 habits Dr. Covey lists are core principles that envelope life. If you follow these principles everyday then you will find a better life. Most people, I've noticed, are always looking for peace and these principles, if applied, can give some peace. Now some readers will immediately scoff that this book can bring you peace and the only book, that can do that is the bible. I agree with that as well but the 7 habits are biblically based. However, they come in an easy to read format. They're life lessons that if everyone followed it would benefit all of us, just like the bible. It provides a structured approach to all of life's problems and / or situations. Now, I'm not saying this is the greatest written book of all time and it doesn't approach the magnitude of the bible. What I am saying is the principles, if applied, will change your life.
Like I said above, take my advice for what it is, free. I'm someone who's tried to look inside and didn't always like what he saw. So I looked elsewhere for guidance and this is one of the best that I've found.
