The 7 Habits of Highly
Effective People
HABIT 1: BE PROACTIVE
• You Create Your Reality: You’re In Charge
• Proactive is not what most people would think it is.
For Covey being proactive means exercising your power of choice
the stimulus you receive from the world and your response. If
down it’s because you allowed the stimulus to bring you down.
HABIT 2: BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND
• Start Creating Your Reality
• Beginning with the end in mind means being clear about who you want to be and
you want to gp. And then travel that path.
• Habit two is based on imagination and on the idea that two different forms of
exist: mental creation and physical creation. The mental creation comes first, and
physical creation follows the mental one.
Covey says that if you are not clear about the mental creation of where you want to
are the mercy of randomness and circumstances.
HABIT 3: PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST
• Time Management is Life Management: Put Your Life Priorities First
• Habit three is all about prioritization.
If you follow the steps of Habit 1 and 2 then you have your values and life goal very
This means you know what are your priorities.. And which are not.
• Basically, your first and major prioritization is through the filter of your life goals.
• Once you have a burning desire to become and do what you want your yeses will
clearly show what are your nos. That’s the bedrock of prioritization.
HABIT 4: THINK WIN / WIN
• Covey says that win/win is a character based approach to human interactions.
• To achieve this level, you must first acquire three essential character traits:
• Integrity (sticking with who you are: feelings, values)
• Maturity (expressing your ideas and feelings with a balance of courage and consideration)
• Abundance mentality (life is no zero sum, there’s plenty for all)
• I particularly liked that the author stresses the importance of integrity in the sense of
aligning yourself with your public actions.
HABIT 5: SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN
TO BE UNDERSTOOD
• Covey says that communication is the most important skill in life. And we are all heavily under-trained in listening. Indeed, very few people even listen at all.
Which is a pity, because the foundation of influencing people is to first understand them.
• Covey says there are four levels of listening:
• Ignoring
• Pretending to listen
• Attentive listening
• Empathic listening
• Even most good listeners stop at the third level of attentive listening.
Attentive listening entails the following:
• Evaluating: judge and then agree or disagree
• Probing: ask question from own frame of reference
• Advising: advising based on own frame of reference
• Interpreting: interpreting his action and feelings based on own frame of reference
HABIT 6: SYNERGIZE
• A Team is Stronger Than an Individual
• The idea of synergizing is that the whole of a well functioning team is
the mere sum of its part.
• The key to an effective group synergy, says the author, is to really value the
differences among us. So ask yourself: do you want to be right, do you want
everyone to agree?
Learn to embrace differences as strength instead.
• Synergy also entails “flow” and perfect group automation as if the group was
functioning as one. That’s when you achieve top results.
HABIT 7: SHARPEN THE SAW
• Take Care of Your Greatest Asset: Yourself
• No habits in the world will take you far unless you preserve, take care and keep improving on
Covey recommends you focus on the four major dimensions of your life:
• Physical: exercise, nutrition and rest
• Social/Emotional: meaningful human connections
• Mental: learning, visualizing, acquiring new knowledge
• Spiritual: art, meditation, music, time in nature, prayer and service
• He says it’s important you commit some time for each one dimension. And he’s right.
FULL SUMMARY
 1. Be Proactive "Taking initiative does not mean being pushy, obnoxious, or aggressive. It does mean recognizing our responsibility to make
things happen."
 2. Begin With the End in Mind "(This habit)...is based on imagination-- the ability to envision, to see the potential, to create with our minds
what we cannot at present see with our eyes..."
 3. Put First Things First "Create a clear, mutual understanding of what needs to be accomplished, focusing on what, not how; results not
methods. Spend time. Be patient. Visualize the desired result."
 4. Think Win-Win "Win-Win is a frame of mind that constantly seeks mutual benefit in all human interactions. Win-Win means that
agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial and satisfying."
 5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood "'Seek First to Understand' involves a very deep shift in paradigm. We typically seek
first to be understood. Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply. They're either speaking
or preparing to speak. They're filtering everything through their own paradigms, reading their autobiography into other people's lives."
 6. Synergize "Synergy works; it's a correct principle. It is the crowning achievement of all the previous habits. It is effectiveness in an
interdependent reality-- it is teamwork, team building, the development of unity and creativity with other human beings.“
 7. Sharpening the Saw "This is the habit of renewal...It circles and embodies all the other habits. It is the habit of continuous
improvement...that lifts you to new levels of understanding and living each of the habits."
