7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a bestselling book by Stephen R. Covey and since the publication in 1989, the book has never been out of print and it has been selling amazingly since then. The question is why? Why does this book sell so many in numbers and why does it not die because most of the books published in the mixed pop age have died already; the music of those days have faded away and even the dressing has changed. Then, why does this 7 Habits of Highly Effective People still running like a movie which has never been out of the theatres? Well, we need to see into it and I will try to be your guide today.
Stephen R. Covey, though he has written other books as well, is widely known for his debut work in the self-help or motivational genre – the 7 habits. He has detailed, in this book, what he has learnt and experienced as a person in the social-public life, meeting new people and knowing the strangers and also coming close to those who have achieved something great in their lives, Stephen has understood that there are major 7 habits which make someone really impressive as a person. And what are the habits that he has written?
Begin with the End in Mind
Put First Things First
Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
Sharpen the Saw
