Salvador Trinxet Llorca, Covey’s seven habits

Covey’s seven habits of highly effective people

Wildly popular throughout the 1990s and into the 21st century, Stephen Covey (1999) has changed the face of many ambitious a manager’s night- stand. He says that highly effective people have seven habits that make •4 them very successful in life and business; furthermore, they do exactly

what they feel is both right and important, and they do it consciously.

When to use it

In order to become highly effective, you should:

1. Be proactive.

2. Begin with the end in mind.

3. Put first things first.

4. Think win-win.

5. First understand, then be understood.

6. Synergize.

7. ‘Sharpen the saw’.

First, says Covey, you have to break loose from being dependent upon *^ others. How? By achieving the practice of the first three habits:

You become proactive. From now on, you take responsibility for your own behaviour. You don’t blame circumstances, conditions, or – perhaps most importantly – your conditioning for your behaviour. You actively choose your response to any situation and any person. You must be pre­pared to respond in a way that you can feel proud of. Even if that requires unearthly hard work or makes you feel uncomfortable, so be it.

When, and whatever you undertake, you must visualize the result or future that you want to achieve. Covey says: you must begin with the end in mind. You have a clear vision of where you want to go, or you don’t go there at all. You know exactly what you want to accomplish, or you choose not to accomplish it at all. You live your life and make decisions according to your deeply held beliefs, principles or fundamental truths.
