Reading response

The 7 habits will help every reader to learn how to take initiative. Covey presents an approach t being effective in attaining goals by aligning oneself to what he calls “true north” principles based on a character ethic which represents as universal and timeless. Habits are powerful factors in our lives. The “7 habits of highly effective people” contributes to the topic of self help about happiness and success. Every time the book shows how wonderful Covey was.

When I moved to part one I noticed that he started with quotes from others.  Then he started to bring personal experiences which he had gone through. He began to talk about his son, how he was weaker than other boys. He cheered his son by saying “you can do it” and it encouraged him a lot and it worked.  “I’ve set and met my career goals and I am having tremendous professional success. But it’s costs me my personal and family life”. (pg 23).

In part 2, I noticed people’s perception of me was my responsibility to not let it cloud my perception of myself. I really loved to read the book and it was way more different than the other books we read previously.
