HABITSWe first make our habits.
Then our habits make us.
1
Habits form our characters.
They constantly express
our characters.
They determine our levels
of effectiveness or
ineffectiveness.
Sow a Thought and
you reap an Action;
Your habit plays a
part in where you will
ultimately end up
(your destiny).
Cultivate the habits that
will bring you to
you want to be.
And More importantly...
To become
&
you want to be...
1st, LEARN & understand
what makes a habit.
• The “theoretical”
component
• The “what to”
& “why to”
The “practical”
component
.
The“how to”
.
The
“motivational”
component
The “want
to”
.
.
principlesWe control our actions, but the
consequences that flow from those actions
are controlled by principles.
2
the 7 habits are based on
principles.
A principle is the actual
reality of the way
things are.
Studies have found that
Regardless of peoples’
There is a consensus
that constantly
surrounds them -
THAT they all share the
same fundamental
.
Values such as:
These are universal.
These are principles.
Every one of the 7 habits
represents a principle.
Are our
&
aligned with principles &
the natural laws?
CHARACTERWhat we are, communicates far more
eloquently than anything we say or do.

before we focus on
techniques or
how to be more effective
with others,
Give our first energies
to our own

paradigmAll the significant breakthroughs were
break-withs old ways of thinking.
4
Paradigms are our
mental representations
of The reality,
Our ideas Of the way
things are.
They come from
our brought ups,
Through social
conditionings,
and from our personal
experiences.
Most people’s paradigms
are functions of the
.
They live up to the
social mirror that
surrounds them...
To avoid
“being labelled”
by the masses
as otherwise,
They try to keep up with the
expectancies projected by the
social mirror.
Ergo...
their paradigms
naturally become
the functions of
the social mirror.
All of us think we
see the world as
it is.
The truth is we
see the world as
we are.
We see what we seek.
and it is from
what we see,
How we see it,
That drives
our attitudes,
Our behaviours.
attitudes and behaviours
“flow out” of
how we look at things.
to better understand the
attitudes & behaviours
of people,
We 1st have to keenly
Observe & explore
Their paradigms.
How do you see it?
How do you see it?
What is your view?
How do you see it?
What is your view?
What is your opinion?
How do you see it?
What is your view?
What is your opinion?
What is your frame of reference?
That’ll help us gain
insight into the way
people interpret their
reality.
Knowing where people
are coming from,
communications can be
more effective.
Emotional
bank accountYou cannot talk yourself out of the
problems you behave yourself into.
5
An emotional bank
account is what we use
to maintain human
relationships.
we can make deposits or
withdrawals from
such accounts:
 Discourtesy & Meanness  Courtesy & Kindness
 Discourtesy & Meanness
 Don’t Make Promises or
Make & Break Them
 Courtesy & Kindness
 Make & Keep Promises
Making and breaking a
promise is far worse
than not making any
promises...
WHEN A PROMISE IS MADE,
KEEP IT.
DESPITE OF CHANGES IN
CIRCUMSTANCES...
DESPITE OF Mood change...
KEEP it.
If REALLY,
the situations changed
to a point it becomes
unwise to keep it,
you have to communicate
.
Get THE ONES YOU
PROMISED to understand
those circumstances.
that WAY, they will
relieve you of it.
 Discourtesy & Meanness
 Don’t Make Promise or
Make & Break Them
 Unclear or Ambiguous
Expectations
 Courtesy & Kindne...
IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE
CLEAR WITH our
expectations.
Expectations WE HAVE
FROM OTHERS.
ALSO, EXPECTATIONS WE
GIVE TO OTHERS.
Leave no room for
ambiguity.
Our frustrations
usually spring out of
our expectations ~
expectations
not met.
When we don’t get what
we expect, we become
frustrated.
When what we expect and
what we get doesn’t
match up, we become
frustrated.
We can
and
our expectations.
By being clear about
communicating them.
Therefore,
we indirectly, control
our frustrations...
or satisfactions.
 Discourtesy & Meanness
 Don’t Make Promise or

 Disloyalty & Dupli...
If you want to
retain those
who are present,
be loyal to those
who are absent.
Never speak ill of
those who are absent.
If there is anything
about people that
bothers you,
speak in their
presence...
Seek To clarify,
to make aware &
to understand.
If THERE EXISTS an
Element of criticism,
be sure that it is of
nature.
Not one that is of
Contempt or Sarcasm,
But One that is of
Helpfulness,
And one that is
for the betterment.

It is only natural that
we all make mistakes.
Whenever YOU make one,
Be QUICK to apologize.
Do so sincerely.
You’ll realize that
people will be very
willing to forgive you.
ULTIMATELY, it is all
about relationships.
And The quality of any
relationship
is based on

THE DEPOSITS & withdrawals
are what build & destroy
trusts.
effectivenessThe ultimate P/PC Balance is to increase
the quality of life.
6
Effectiveness is about...
p = production of
desired results
pc = production capability
In other words,
p = Getting what you
want
pc = In a way that enables
you to get what you
want again & again
p/pc balance is
what we do
to continue producing
what we want.
The balancing is an
process...
Just Like doing exercises
regularly to keep our
bodies fit & healthy,
learning Continuously
to remain relevant &
keep abreast of
the ever changing
world around us,
And continually
training our minds
to keep them
Sharp, clear & alert.
In essence,
Constant development
of the self -
The body,
The mind,
The spirit.
effectiveness with
oneself is a form of
p/pc balance.
Maturity
continuumInterdependence is a choice that only
independent people can make.
7
Maturity continuum is
the model used to explain
the 7 habits.
A process leading to
growth & development.
the continuous
incremental nature of
growth & progression.
Lead your life in a truly effective way.

  • @Arvind Chittewale, I always think that Habit 1, Being i Proactive is the most important habit because it serves as the foundation to which the rest build upon. My understanding of being proactive are these: 1. Choice - Choosing how we think about, and respond to situations and people 2. Take Charge - Be accountable for our actions, whether they are right or wrong. Circle of Influence - Put our energies on constantly improving ourselves and getting better and work on the things which we could effect the outcome. Above all else, always treat people as if they are proactive! Tell me what you think Arvind. Share with me how applying this habit has transformed you. Let me learn something from you.

  • @Kaizen2174 Hi Kaizen, always glad to know that the deck has served its purpose. ^_^ Thank you for letting me know! Do share it with the ones you love and care about so that they too could begin to acquire these powerful concepts, and hopefully, benefit their lives (and yours too of coz!). Personally, I think it is even more important to apply these ideas that we have learned, directly into our lives (only then, the magic will start taking place from there.) I believe that involves taking the time to cultivate (as much as possible) all the 7 Habits and eventually make them an integral part of our lives (i.e. until all the habits become fully automatic). In additional to this foundational deck, I have also dedicated a deck each, for every single one of the 7 habits. I strongly encourage you to further explore these decks and download them anytime you wish to. A point to note here: According to Dr Steven Covey, all the 7 habits have been meaningfully structured and sequenced the way as they are. As such, for anyone to harness the full power of these Habits, it is most recommended that he or she learns (and ultimately internalizes) them in that particular order. Let me know if I could be of any help to you pertaining to this learning.
