7 Habits of Highly Effective People

 

Habit 1 – Be Proactive – You are the programmer. 

This habit means that our life is the product of our values and not feelings. It is the product of our decisions and not conditions. Proactivity means taking responsibility, taking an initiative to do everything required to make good things happen. The author is using the computer metaphor to elucidate that habit 1 is the awareness that we are the programmers of our future.

Habit 2 – Begin with End in Mind. You write your programme. 

Habit 2 provides, we write our programme that meets our needs and values and not others. Habit 1 is having a personal vision. Meaning, we have a personal power to choose our response based on our values. Habit 2 is about personal leadership. We are the leaders of our own life. It is our mental creation or a blueprint. We want to achieve or create. It is an end in mind picture. It is like having a picture of a jigsaw puzzle and then putting the puzzles together. How useful is it when we begin a project with an end in mind.

Habit 3 – Put first thing first. You run the programme. 

This habit is about personal management. As mentioned, habit one begins with that we are the programmers. Habit 2 starts with having an end in mind. We as should have the mental image of our programme and write it. Habit 3 is about running the programme. We execute this programme. We put first thing first.

The opposite of habit 3, will be putting second or third thing first. But as J.W. Goethe said, “things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.”

Habit 4 – Think Win-Win. 

This habit lies in the heart of all relationships. It is the habit of mutual benefit. It is the paradigm of abundance. Meaning, there is plenty out there for everyone. You don’t need to despair. The strength of other people should not threaten us. We can nurture competencies around us. We can share our knowledge, recognition, gain or profit with others. Why? Because of abundance. We should not think win-lose but instead, focus on the situation which is acceptable and beneficial to all parties. As a result, we will get our fair share and build strong, lasting positive relationships with others.

Habit 5 – Seek First to Understand, Then To Be Understood.

When we are confronted with a problem, we regularly jump right to prescribing a solution. That is wrong. We must first take time to listen to the other person and then make recommendations.

Habit 6 – Synergize.

Together everyone one achieves more. It is producing something which we could not have been able to create alone.

Habit 7 – Sharpen the saw. 

This habit is about the constant renewal of all parts of our life. Which includes the physical, mental, the spiritual and the social-emotional dimension. The continual nourishment of these aspects is essential to combat the inevitable complacency and stagnation.  So we can stay effective in the long term.
