Stephen Covey - Motivational Writer

Stephen Covey will be remembered most as the author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, which sold over 25 million copies.  It’s been many years since I read “the habits” but I was delighted recently when I learned that my 8th grade daughter read The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens in school. Although they weren’t completely original thoughts, the catchy labels he gave the habits made them memorable:

Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand
Habit 6: Synergize
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
