My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After 25 editions and 25 millions of copies sold, I believe it's safe to say that "The 7 Habit of Highly Effective People" is a master lesson on life. I am currently following Habit 1: Be Proactive, to reach my goal of becoming a writer; Habit 4: Think Win/Win to shape up my romantic relationship. I will then focus on Leading (Habit 2) and Managing (Habit 3) my life and relations as I learnt from Stephen Covey's bestseller.
A detail that caught my attention is the presence of the author's life and beliefs in every sentence. It's easy to guess the amount of time and effort he put into his masterpiece, while he was raising a family of 9 kids and countless grandkids. I was sorry to hear he passed away in 2012, leaving behind an extremely successful business, the FranklinCovey organization.
I recommend "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" to all who care about living fully and significant lives, to all who are planning to be successful, have a family, own a business, improve their relationships. That covers pretty much everybody who's alive on the planet.
Stephen Covey's style is simple, anecdotal, charismatic and his examples and personal experiences add a touch of empathy to the important lesson he's learnt and willing to share with us.
