7 habits covey

  1. 1. Be a Champion of Change with the 7 Habits • • • • • • • Are you able to change important areas of your life? Are you just living day to day, or toward a hope? Do you prioritize your time and energy well? How often do you feel bullied by others? Do you understand others ... and vice versa? What are your unique talents? Are they important? Does your life often feel “out of balance”? • What does “success” mean to you? (family, friends, community, hobby, career, faith) • What is required to obtain that success?

  2. 2. Are you willing to change course? Two battleships assigned to the training squadron had been at sea on maneuvers in heavy weather for several days. I was serving on the lead battleship and was on watch on the bridge as night fell. The visibility was poor with patchy fog, so the captain remained on the bridge keeping an eye on all activities. Shortly after dark, the lookout on the wing of the bridge reported, “Light, bearing on the starboard bow.” “Is it steady or moving astern?” the captain called out. Lookout replied, “Steady, captain,” which meant we were on a dangerous collision course with that ship. The captain then called to the signalman, “Signal that ship: We are on a collision course, advise you to change course 20 degrees.” Back came a signal, “Advisable for you to change course 20 degrees.” The captain said, “Send, I’m a captain, change course 20 degrees.” “I’m a seaman second class,” came the reply. “You had better change course 20 degrees.” By that time the captain was furious. He spat out, “Send, I’m a battleship. Change course 20 degrees.” Back came the flashing light, “I’m a lighthouse.” We changed course. Will you crash against the principles ... or change course? 2

  4. 4. Habit 1: Be proactive. the gap = our choice stimulus proactive (forward acting, opportunity-focused, clear) I will read one book per month in my field.

I will cook dinners for my wife every Monday. response circle of no concern Victor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning Not until you can say I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday. ... can you say I choose otherwise. circle of influence concern reactive (reverse acting, problem-bound, vague) I am not as smart as others in this company. People think I’m too heavy. I wish our Monday evenings were better. • Examples of your reactive statements ... and your “proactive” counterparts. • What to do when frustrated? Discouraged? Imposter? What is your “fix routine”? 4 • Why not be proactive? What is the risk? Are you willing to risk failure?

  10. 10. The P/PC balance Aesop’s fable “The Goose and the Golden Egg” “A man and his wife had the good fortune to possess a goose that laid a golden egg every day. Lucky though they were, they soon began to think they were not getting rich fast enough, and, imagining the bird must be made of gold inside, they decided to kill it in order to secure the whole store of precious metal at once. But when they cut it open they found it was just like any other goose. Thus, they neither got rich all at once, as they had hoped, nor enjoyed any longer the daily addition to their wealth.” Production (things you are “paid” for) Production Capability (no “pay”!) designing a chemical process wiring a home doing a dance enjoying a healthy body having great kids studying chemical engineering apprenticing as an electrician practicing dance exercising preparing evening dinners, reading to kids 10

  13. 13. Habit 4: Think win-win. win-win or no deal (you get hard feelings) (abundance mentality; get P and PC) lose-lose win-lose (never pays) consideration lose-win (other person gets hard feeling) courage • Are there times when paradigms others than “win-win” are appropriate? • How do you develop “courage”? “Consideration”? Emotional bank account? • What causes conflict? Tools for conflict resolution? Your “boundaries”? 13

Habit 5: First understand ... then be understood. win-win area = L x h h = “understand” L = “be understood” 4 tips for dealing with people • Do not criticize, condemn, or complain. • Express sincere appreciation. • Give them “emotional air” and learn their story. • Focus on their interests (know your best alternative coming in). Dale Carnegie How to Win Friends and Influence People Fisher & Ury, Getting to Yes • • • • What are some “stranglers” for emotional air? What are some ways we can express sincere appreciation? How often do you ask someone to a professional lunch? How do you meet a person? How do you greet a person? 14
  15. 15. Habit 6: Synergize. “Animal school” Once upon a time, the animals decided they must do something heroic to meet the problems of a “New World”, so they organized a school. They adopted an activity curriculum consisting of running, climbing, swimming, and flying. To make it easier to administer, all animals took all the subjects. In the end, the duck’s web feet were so badly worn that he couldn’t swim, the rabbit had a nervous breakdown and couldn’t run, the eagle was disciplined severely for getting to the top of the tree without climbing, and an abnormal eel ended up doing best overall and winning valedictorian. • What are your unique gifts? What talents do you need from others? • What qualities often seem like a disadvantage, but are necessary? • How do you contact or talk with people, if you are shy? (Carnegie) 15
  16. 16.

  18. 18. Habit 7: Sharpen the saw. Spiritual battle of good versus evil (atheism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism) Social Mental family, friends, service (notes, phone calls, emails, visits) reading, journaling, discussing, seminars, meetings Physical endurance, strength, flexibility, sleep, eating • When will YOU sharpen your saw? • What measures will you use in each category? 18
  19. 19. The homework … stablish your “big rocks” – the important changes, not just the urgent. 1 Decide that you CAN in fact change your life. 2 Get away one weekend with a pen and pad of paper. Write down what you HOPE for in life, and what you feel called towards (e.g., family, work, opera). If you don’t know … talk with friends or family. If you don’t know … try things! Athletics, service, camping, animal rights, politics, research. If you don’t know … read biographies and newspapers. If you don’t know … look at http://www.dosomething.org/index.cfm. If you don’t know … is finishing your ChE degree your current “end”? an toward your vision. 3 Record how you spend a typical week … then decide how well it matches your vision. Use a daily planner (e.g., a date book, a Palm) to plan by weeks, focusing on today. If in a rut, find a small victory and win it. harpen the saw. mental: Learn a hobby (e.g., chess, golf, piano), or about people (Mars & Venus, Dale Carnegie) physical: Exercise, eat right, sleep. social: Find friends with whom you can share your deepest struggles, biggest triumphs, most guarded weaknesses and fears. spiritual: Good versus evil questions are the biggest you’ll face. 19
