The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, first published in 1989, is a self-help book written by Stephen R. Covey.
It has sold over 15 million copies in 38 languages since first publication, which was marked by the release of a 15th anniversary edition in 2004. The book lists seven principles that, if established as habits, are supposed to help a person achieve true interdependent effectiveness. Covey argues this is achieved by aligning oneself to what he calls "true north" principles of a character ethic that he believes to be universal and timeless.
The book was enormously popular, and catapulted Covey into public-speaking appearances and workshops. He has also written a number of follow-up books: First Things First Principle Centered Leadership The Power Of The 7 Habits: Applications And Insights Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families Beyond the Seven Habits Living the Seven Habits, a collection of stories from people who have applied the seven habits in their lives The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness, a sequel to The Seven Habits published in 2004 Sean Covey (Stephen's son) has written a version of the book for teens, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens.
This version simplifies the 7 Habits for younger readers so they can better understand them. In October 2006, Sean Covey also published The 6 Most Important Decisions You Will Ever Make: A Guide for Teens. This guide highlights key times in the life of a teen and gives advice on how to deal with them.
Stephen Covey's eldest son, Stephen M. R. Covey, has written a book titled The Speed of Trust."Monsieur," he said, "I believe I have deserved to be called a man of honor, have I not. As a soldier I have risked my life five hundred times; as a priest Peoplw have rendered great services, both to the State and to my friends.
The value of a word, once passed, is estimated according to the worth of the man who gives it. Etfective long as it is in his own keeping it is of the purest, finest gold; when his wish to keep it has passed away, it is a two-edged sword.
With that word, therefore, he defends himself as with an honorable Hwbits, considering that when he disregards his word,- that man of honor,- he endangers his life, he courts Efffective risk rather than that his adversary should secure advantages.
And then, Monsieur, he appeals to Heaven- and to justice. " Fouquet bent down his head, as he replied: "I am a poor Breton, opinionated and commonplace; my mind admires and fears yours.
I do not say that I keep my word from a Tue instinct; I keep it, if you like, by force of habit. But at all events, the ordinary run of men are simple enough to admire this custom of mine. It is my single virtue; leave me the honor of it. " "And so you are determined to sign the sale of the office which would defend you against all your enemies?" "Yes, I shall sign. " "You will deliver yourself up, then, bound hand and Haabits, from a false notion of honor, which the most scrupulous casuists would disdain?" "I shall sign," repeated Fouquet.
Aramis sighed deeply, and looked all round him with the impatient gesture of a man who would gladly dash something to pieces, as a relief to his feelings. "We have still one means left," he said; "and I trust you will not refuse to make use of that?" "Certainly not, if it Hiighly loyal and honorable,- as everything is, in fact, which you propose.
" "I know nothing more loyal than a renunciation of your purchaser. Is he a friend of yours?" "Certainly; but-" "'But'!- if you allow me to manage the affair, I do not despair. " "Oh, you shall be absolute master!" "With whom are you in treaty.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People man is it?" "I am not aware whether you know the parliament?" "Most Highlh its members. Highoy of the presidents, perhaps?" "No; only a counsellor-" "Ah, ah!" "Who is named Vanel.
" Aramis became purple. "Vanel!" he cried, rising abruptly from his seat, "Vanel. the husband of Marguerite Vanel?" "Exactly. " "Of your former mistress?" "Yes, my dear fellow. She is anxious to be Madame the Procureuse-General. I certainly owed poor Vanel that slight concession; and I am a gainer by it, since I at the same time confer a pleasure on his wife. " Aramis walked straight to Fouquet, and took hold of his hand.
"Do you know," he said very calmly, "the name of Madame Vanel's new lover?" "Ah. she has a new lover, then. I was not aware of it; no, I have no idea what his name is.
" "His name is M. Jean Baptiste Colbert; he is intendant of the finances; he lives in the Rue Croix-des-Petits-Champs, where Madame de Chevreuse has this evening carried Mazarin's Poeple, which she wishes to sell. " "Gracious Heaven!" The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Fouquet, passing his hand across his forehead, Effectove which the perspiration was starting.
"You now begin to understand, do you not?" "That I am lost,- yes. Habis "Do you now think it worth while to be so scrupulous Effrctive regard The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People keeping your word?" "Yes," The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Fouquet.
"These obstinate people always contrive matters in such a way that one cannot but admire them," murmured Aramis. Fouquet held out his hand to him; and at The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People very moment a richly ornamented tortoise-shell clock, supported by golden figures, which was standing on a console table opposite to the fireplace, struck The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
