The Daily Echo: August Book of the Month: “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey

August 1, 2014

For those people that know me this choice was not if but when this book would be the book of the month. For me personally no other book aside from the scriptures has had more of a positive impact upon my life than The 7 Habits. There is a reason it has sold over 15 million copies in 38 countries. In 2011 it was given the distinction as one of the top 25 books of our time. Don’t pick up this book and think it is a “quick fix” book and within a few days you will master the habits. I picked up my first copy in 1989 the year it was released. I have read it over 20 times and listened to it possibly 50. I have taken multiple courses on each habit and continually try to improve upon each one. If you decide to read and apply the habits you will become better in every area of your life. A better father, mother, son, daughter, sister, brother, friend, co-worker, boss, all in all a better person. I challenge each of you to read this book. As you read take the time to put into practice this timeless principles. You might get frustrated and desire a quicker path. The beauty of life is progression so be patient but never stop progressing. I cannot give a book a higher recommendation than The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I hope everyone has the opportunity to learn from it.
