READ The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People REVIEW Ì ILDESIGN.CO Ñ Stephen R. Covey Stephen R. Covey Ñ 1 DOWNLOAD Lready judging by the number of copies the book has sold So where is the shortcomingThere are two main problems here and we are talking only about the people who have read the book already The first problem is that most people are too lazy to implement the ideals of Stephen Covey in their lives They consider his masterpiece of a book as a mere coffee table book or a book that you use for light reading when you are traveling and then forget all about it They do not realize that this book contains life changing information Or they take the information and do not make the effort to actually utilize it so that it becomes knowledge for themThe second problem is that a lot of people have a myopic view of Covey’s ideals These are people who are impressed by the book already If you ask them what the seven habits are they can rattle them off end to end but th. This was recommended reading following on from a course and I found it to be an odd mix of the homely and the disturbingOn the whole it s probably the dogmatic air of absolute certainty that I find disturbing that and the way he describes how he reduced his son to tears over keeping the garden in good order Reading this book is rather like having a very one sided conversation with a particularly earnest and opinionated drunk who isn t shy to jab you in the chest with a fore finger to underline a point That s not to say that the seven habits are bad far from it They are a uite reasonable and potentially useful set of habits Whether effective people tend to have these habits or if having these habits will make you effective is presumed but not proven by this book which is heavily anecdotal but that is neither here nor there The power of the argument and the vast number of sales lies in how the seven habits tap into our moral beliefs about the kind of habits we want to be able to have to make us successful and to the point the kind of habits that we want to believe make people successful and in the great tradition of self help books it asserts the primacy of the individual will over any and all other circumstances No war want injustice disease political economic or social structure can hinder the truly just man girt by the seven habits Business in this account is a battlefield in the moral universe the victor a sage at least if not a saintBe proactive begin with the end in mind put first things first think winwin seek first to understand and then to be understood synergise and sharpen the saw are the seven habits That s the meat of the book in one sentence I wonder if all of Covey s seven habits could be cribbed out of Weber s The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism But eually perhaps we should remember that seven is a magic number this really isn t a business book it is a spiritual book The seven habits are to stand firm against the seven deadly sins Life on Earth for Covey is a probationary period for the life ever after since Covey was a Mormon being true to his faith was due to be rewarded with stewardship of an entire planet Clearly one needs to demonstrate effective stewardship over the smaller business of mortal life to be judged ready for such a substantial rewardIn turn this was another disturbing element to the book for me because this means that everything becomes functional Having a picnic with your sweetheart isn t about enjoying life it is an important uadrant II activity This is a mechanistic view of the human experience and sadder yet a harsh one The path to life everlasting is a narrow one beset with dangers while storms around do rage Fear not lonely pilgrim for Covey illuminates the way with uadrants and diagramsYet there is optimism in his approach Understanding triumphs eternally Despite what he repeats about paradigm shifts he believes that everybody can come to see both alternative paradigms and appreciate their validity Personally I suspect that every reader will be able to think of occasions when opposite points of view are not reconcilable Honesty and realism has to temper any reading of this bookMaybe my problem with this book is that everything is spelt out It s a Sunday sermon and the pastor is going to read out every word and isn t going to be hurried on to his inevitable conclusions Worth reading for a taste of the horror and the glory of late twentieth early twenty first century corporate life but keep some salt handy

READ The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People REVIEW Ì ILDESIGN.CO Ñ Stephen R. Covey Stephen R. Covey Ñ 1 DOWNLOAD When Stephen Covey first released The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People the book became an instant rage because people suddenly got up and took notice that their lives were headed off in the wrong direction; and than that they realized that there were so many simple things they could do in order to navigate their life correctly This book was wonderful education for people education in how to live life effectively and get closer to the ideal of being a ‘success’ in lifeBut not everyone understands Stephen Covey’s model fully well or maybe there are some people who haven’t read it yet This is definitely true because we still see so much failure all around us Now I am not saying that by using Covey’s model or anyone else’s model for that matter you can become a sure shot success but at least we should have seen many successes around us a. I would like to make clear that David Hasselhoff s appearance in this review should in no way be deemed to imply that I endorse or support his career in any way whatsoeverThank you for your understanding FIVE PRACTICAL HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLEFirst a few comments on the seven so called habits identified in the book namely 1Be proactive 2Begin with the End in Mind 3 Put First Things First 4 Think Win Win 5 Seek First to Understand then to be understood 6 Synergize and7 Sharpen the SawIn a wordcrap In several words what a giant steaming pile of new age masturbatory corp lingo platitude spewing bullshit Think Win Winare you kidding me with this Jim Jones Kool aid party chant Synergizejust hearing that word makes me throw up in my mouth Sharpen the sawexactlyreading that phrase makes me literally want to sharpen the saw and slice a hate filled path through the contents of this book This book is like a giant fortune cookie full of sounds good but says nothing My advice rather than read this book go get a six pack or a bottle of wine grab some China Mieville or Dan Simmons and find a nice comfy tree to sit under while you read something that might actually expand your mind Now I certainly don t have any foolproof answers or magic exercises that will help you bring out the inner winner inside you However I did come up five pracical and hopefully a little humorous habits that have proven to be pretty effective at making people successful in their chosen field tongue planted firmly in cheek 1 EMBRACE TECHNOLOGY AND MEDICAL SCIENCE TO BECOME THE BEST YOU CAN BE 2 BE BOLD BE DARING AND DELIVER TO THE MARKETPLACE THE NEXT BIG THING 3 DON T BE AFRAID TO USE THE FORCE TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOAL 4 GET IN GOOD WITH THE GERMANS 5 BE RUTHLESS PROACTIVE IN DEALING WITH THE COMPETITION THE END
