The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Habits have a great power to shape you up. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, recommended by Michael McCullough, Noah Kagan, Dave Ramsey and Daniel Pink, will help you to develop some new and effective habits that can transform you forever.

“Helps you decide which action to actually take,” says Michael McCullough for his favourite book.

Noah Kagan mentioned this in a list of 18 books that changed his life.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, first published in 1989, is a business and self-help book written by Stephen Covey. Covey presents an approach to being effective in attaining goals by aligning oneself to what he calls “true north” principles based on a character ethic that he presents as universal and timeless.

Covey defines effectiveness as the balance of obtaining desirable results with caring for that which produces those results. He illustrates this by referring to the fable of the goose that laid the golden eggs. He further claims that effectiveness can be expressed in terms of the P/PC ratio, where P refers to getting desired results and PC is caring for that which produces the results.

Covey’s best-known book has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide since its first publication. The audio version became the first non-fiction audio-book in U.S. publishing history to sell more than one million copies.

Dave Ramsey recommended this on his website and Daniel Pink mentioned this book on “The Tim Ferriss Show” podcast.
