The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Habit One: Be Proactive.
"The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person." (p.72)

Habit Two: Begin With The End In Mind.
"All things are created twice," first mentally and then physically or actually.

Habit Three: Put First Things First.
Reduce time spent on things that are urgent but unimportant and devote more time to what is more important but not necessarily urgent.

Habit Four: Think Win-Win.
Have an Abundance Mentality.

Habit Five: Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood.
Listen empathically (getting inside the other person's frame of reference so you listen with one purpose: understanding) until you truly understand the other person's position. Then work on ensuring that you clearly communicate your thoughts and ideas.

Habit Six: Synergize.
Create a solution or a design or an approach better than either party could have produced individually.

Habit Seven: Sharpen The Saw.
The commitment to continuous improvement in each of the four aspects of human existence: Physical, Mental, Spiritual, and Social-Emotional.
