7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Stephen R. Covey, the author of the best-selling book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, died a few days ago at the age of 79 and his 7 habits remain just as applicable today as when they were first published in 1989, particularly in a difficult economy when many are looking for jobs or seeking to build their careers.

The 7 habits that Covey described in his book are:

1. Be proactive
2. Begin with the end in mind
3. Put first things first
4. Think win-win
5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood
6. Synergize
7. Sharpen the saw

A number of people wrote about Covey and the 7 habits following news of his death. Here are a few articles we found interesting:
