The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R. Covey
this is a great book. really. it is. i am really impressed with it. in many ways it is the sequel to one of my favorite all time books: The Effective Executive by the late Peter Drucker.
read the reviews of this book and you’ll find people raving about how it changed their life. i would go so far but i would bet that anyone who followed the 7 habits described would become a much better and happier person. and when you think of the happy people you know, they tend to follow most of the habits (though probably not all as most people aren’t perfect).
summation: for those of you like me who have skipped this book over the years, i highly recommend you read or listen to it (in fact, i really recommend the audio book).
