“If I really want to improve my situation, I can work on the one thing over which I have control – myself.” – Stephen R. Covey

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R. Covey might seem like a self-help book and is in many ways so, both professionally and personally. The book is about self-leadership after all and Covey highlights simple yet complex ideas which resonate with most of us. Though this isn’t a quick-fix, checklist, done tomorrow book like the many that are out there. This is a book that you will want to read, re-read and really study as Covey takes you through what he calls a “paradigm shift” in your personal self. Proactivity is a word that many in the business world like to use yet are not walking the talk. Stephen R. Covey takes you to the core of real proactivity and gives you the way towards actualizing your desired best self, and not only leading yourself but other as well.
