The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People Someone recommended this book, a year or so ago, and I bought it because I liked the review that was forwarded to me. However, for some reason I couldn’t get past the first chapter and that too I had read in pieces. I don’t know why instead of finishing the book I, after four months of trying to read it, passed it to one of my friends. Read More. Review: Instead of jumping straight into explaining the ‘7 habits’ Mr. Covey shares a personal story, something worth paying attention to. By means of, his and his wife’s experience with their son, he explains how parents fall in the ‘societal trap’ of wanting their kids to be perfect individuals praised by one and all. Not thinking about helping their chidnre develop their unique character and qualities. As every child is different, parents should treat him accordingly, instead of forcing the child to be someone he’s not. To achieve this goal, parents need to reset the ‘their conditioning,’ we have been programmed to follow, to be accepted and be part of the society. After the amazing introduction, the author explains the first habit “to be proactive.” Being proactive is all about understanding that you are the only one responsible for all your actions or reactions to certain situations/people in your life at all times. The word reaction, as the author explains, is similar to negative action. And your goal should always be, to consciously choose your response in every situation possible. You should not allow people (family, friends, enemies etc.) in our lives or the outside influences, to decide ‘how you feel or how you act at any given time.’ “You’re the creator. You are in charge.—Stephen R. Covey (Read More)

What’s Not Sizzling Mentioning religion and stating how the principles are common to all major religions of the world. Equating ‘common sense’ with ‘natural laws’ when not busy calling them ‘religious laws.’ Whenever, the author mentions ‘natural laws’ I couldn’t stop thinking about laws like the survival of the fittest, fight or flight etc. I thought they were real natural laws that we, humans disregard in favor of civilization.

The book not only teaches how to be more productive in professional life but shares some good suggestions on how to manage personal life too.
