The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey | Summary Review by Stephen Diagram

Proactive > Reactive

  • We have effort reducing brains
  • It is easier to complain
  • It is more difficult to improve
  • Don’t complain about what is out of your control

Begin with the End in Mind

  • What do you want people to say about you?

Put First Things First

  • We say the most important things in life are our family and wealth
  • But we don’t spend the majority of our time on these things

Think Win-Win

  • No Zero Sum
  • One does not need to lose for one to win
  • Both parties can benefit

Speak First to Understand, Then to be Understood

  • Provide value to those who are listening


  • The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

Sharpen the Saw

  • Work Smarter
  • Not Harder
