Summary written by: Chris Taylor
There’s a great exercise that most of you have probably done or heard of before. Imagine yourself on a deserted island. Imagine that you will be there for a very long time. The island is a paradise; a delicious variety of food, cool clean water, easily available shelter, and beautiful weather in abundance. Now imagine that you were able to go there with only three material items – one book, one CD and one person. Which book would you take? What music gives you the greatest satisfaction? Which person would you choose to be with in paradise?
While the exercise is a great one under any circumstance, its relevance to this week’s article is this – if I was only allowed one book, I would take the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey.
The Seven Habits is a brilliant book; with a value far exceeding that which you might expect from the title. Much more than a simple list of seven skills or common characteristics of effective people, Covey teaches the importance of Character1 Ethics; the timeless principles that make up our value systems. Just like the potential height of a building is dependent on the strength and integrity of its foundation, the character ethics are essential building blocks in creating a truly remarkable life. Using “seven habits” as the framework for his lesson, Covey shows us how to work from the inside-out to build the lives of our dreams. He breaks his seven lessons into two parts – Personal Victory and Public Victory. In this week’s summary (and subsequent workshop), we’ll be focusing on the first part – personal victory.
