Salvador Trinxet, Highly effective people

Covey’s seven habits of highly effective people

You put first things first. By taking full control and staying disciplined you can focus on the most important, yet not necessarily the most urgent activities. Covey’s list of such important activities includes building rela­tionships, writing a personal mission statement, making a long-range plan, doing your workout, preparing for that presentation next week, etc. Do all those things now that would otherwise be squeezed into the last minute, delayed or even dismissed. They will help you eliminate those urgent activities that recently topped your overweight to-do list, but really were not as important. Perhaps Eisenhower’s matrix will come in handy? See Eisenhower’s effective time management, later in this book.

Now that you have reached the point of being independent and you are using your time to effect your most important goals in life, you must increase your effectiveness with others around you.

You need to think win-win. You must believe in ‘abundance’; there is plenty for everyone. One person’s success does not necessarily require someone else’s failure. You seek solutions to problems that allow all par­ties involved (including yourself) to benefit.

You can make people around you feel like winners if you understand first, then try to be understood. You might actually learn something from them in process, now that you finally start to shut up and listen. In .fact, you listen with the strong intent to fully, deeply understand the other person on both an intellectual analytical and emotional level. Diagnose before you prescribe, says Covey.

Finally, you need to synergize. This means that you open your mind to . fresh, creative ideas. You become an agent of innovation, a trailblazer and a pathfinder. You are convinced that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You value differences between people and try to build upon those dif­ferences (see references and further reading for Belbin’s team roles). You ,come up with a creative way out of a conflict situation.

Yoi. have now reached a stage of interdependence. You are effective and admired by family, friends and co-workers. But you should never allow yourself to rest on your laurels. You must ‘sharpen the saw’, meaning that you continuously try to improve yourself. You keep innovating and refining. You have a relentless thirst for learning and exploring.
