  21. 21. S EVEN P RINCIPLES UPONW HICH THE S EVEN H ABITS A RE B ASED The Seven Habits center on timeless and universal principles of personal, interpersonal, managerial, and organizational effectiveness. Listed below are the seven principles upon which the Seven Habits are based-principles which are in our circle of influence. 21
  22. 22. S EVEN P RINCIPLES UPONW HICH THE S EVEN H ABITS A RE B ASED1. The principle of continuous learning, of self- reeducation - the discipline that drives us toward the values we believe in. Such constant learning is required in today’s world, in light of the fact that many of us can expect to work in up to five radically different fields before we retire.2. The principle of service, of giving oneself to others, of helping to facilitate other people’s work. 22
  23. 23. S EVEN P RINCIPLES UPONW HICH THE S EVEN H ABITS A RE B ASED3. The principle of staying positive andoptimistic, radiating positive energy - includingavoiding the four emotional cancers (criticisingcomplain- ing, comparing, and competing).4. The principle of affirmation of others - treating people as proactive individuals who havegreat potential.5. The principle of balance - the ability to identify our various roles and to spend appropriate amounts of time in, and focus on, all theimpor- tant roles and dimensions of our life.Success in one area of our life cannotcompensate for 23 neglect or failure in other
  24. 24. S EVEN P RINCIPLES UPONW HICH THE S EVEN H ABITS A RE B ASED6. The balance of spontaneity and serendipity -the ability to experience life with a sense of adventure, excitement, and fresh rediscovery, instead of trying to find a serious side tothings that have no serious side.7. The principle of consistent self-renewal andself- improvement in the four dimensions of one’s life: physical, mental, spiritual, and social- emotional. 24

  28. 28. FOUR UNIQUEHUMAN ENDOWMENTS1. Self-awareness2. Conscience3. Imagination4. Willpower 28
  29. 29. F OUR U NIQUE H UMANE NDOWMENTS1. Self-Awareness We begin to become self-aware and explore the programs we are living out. We come to realize that we stand apart from our pro-gramming and can even examine it. We also realize that between stimulus and response, we have the freedom to choose. This self-awareness then leads to the ability to look at other unique endowments in our secret life. 29
  30. 30. F OUR U NIQUE H UMANE NDOWMENTS2. Conscience Our conscience is our internal sense of right and wrong, our “moral nature.” It is the “greater harmonizer” and “balance wheel” of all the principles that govern our behaviour. Our conscience gives us a sense of the degree to which our thoughts and actions are in harmony with our principles. 30
  31. 31. F OUR U NIQUE H UMANE NDOWMENTS3. Power of Imagination We can visit the power of the mind to create or to imagine that which does not exist now. In that imagination lie our faith and our hope for the future. We look at what is possible, what we can envision. 31
  32. 32. F OUR U NIQUE H UMANE NDOWMENTS4. Willpower or Independent Will Willpower refers to our determination, our resoluteness - our ability to act based solely on our self-awareness. We ask ourselves, “Am I really willing to to the distance on my mission statement?” “Am I willing to walk my talk?” “Am I really willing to put first things first in spite of external distractions and pressures?” “Am I going to live a life of total integrity?” 32
  33. 33. B ASIC C HARACTERISTICS OFG OOD M ISSION S TATEMENTS Developing a mission statement is foundational to Habit 2, Begin with the End in Mind. It sets general guidelines for our life based on our values and our roles and goals. There are four basic characteristics of good mission statements, whether they be personal, family, or organizational mission statements. 33
  34. 34. B ASIC C HARACTERISTICS OFG OOD M ISSION S TATEMENTS 1. A mission statement should be timeless and changeless. Because goals are not timeless, they should not be included. Mission state- ments should be based upon unchanging core principles that operate regardless of present realities or situations. This changeless core will enable us to live with changes inside other people and inside the environment. As our consciousness grows and we mature, we will gradually strengthen, deepen, and improve our mission statement. Nevertheless, we should always initially write our mission statement as if 34 will never it
  35. 35. B ASIC C HARACTERISTICS OFG OOD M ISSION S TATEMENTS 2. A mission statement should deal with both ends and means. Ends have to do with what we are about. Means have to do with how we go about achieving those ends. Principles are what we implements to achieve those ends. Ends and means are inseparable. In truth, ends preexist in the means. “You’ll never achieve a worthy end through unworthy means.” 35
  36. 36. B ASIC C HARACTERISTICS OFG OOD M ISSION S TATEMENTS 3. A mission statement should deal with all four of our basic needs: a. To live (our physical and economic needs) b. To love and to be loved (our cultural and social ends) c. To learn (our needs to grow, develop, be recognized, and be useful) d. To leave a legacy (our spiritual need for meaning, for feeling that life matters, that we add value and make a difference. 36
  37. 37. B ASIC C HARACTERISTICS OFG OOD M ISSION S TATEMENTS4. A mission statement should deal with all thesignificant roles of our life, such as a parent,teacher, manager, neighbour, and so forth. “Internalizing” ourmission statement will also help us get aclear understanding of what is trulyimportant. Goethe once said, “Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.” This means that we learn how tosay no at appropriate times. Every time wesay yes to something that is of little or noimportance, we are saying no to somethingthat is more important. Almost every day,most of us are caught in circum- stanceswhere we should say no but don’t. We often 37 lack
