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.
Covey's son wrote a follow up book for teens - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens which if your teen hasn't read it yet, please give it to them. They might not get it all or use all of it, but if they glean anything out of it, it's a worthwhile investment.
Covey's book has helped me very much and I recommend it to everyone without reservation. An excellent guide on how to improve your life. ***Caution*** there are no short cuts, no 'silver bullets' It requires hard work, consistency and commitment. But those things are true of anything worthwhile.
am happy that i bought this book, like he said " i did not invent those laws " but he did a great work of organizing them into a coherent structure, easy to follow and apply in a daily life. i would recommend this to anyone willing to make positive changes in their productivity or life with others.
