      The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Audiobook

      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!

      Any Afro Centered individual easily sees the afrikan origins engraved at the root of most of the 7 Habits. But where this book stands out, is where he assists us in creating a template, a planner more specifically, to allow us effectively confront this Eurocentric society which will ravage and destroy us if not dealt with accordingly:

      * Habit 3: Put First Things First: Principles of Personal Management

      Understanding the activities of the "Four Quadrants":

      The Four-Quadrant Activity-Management Paradigm
      In life, all activities can be classified into four basic categories or "quadrants" based on two measurements: Urgency and Importance. The following matrix illustrates how to categorize tasks based on these two criteria. Note that Quadrant II should remain a person's primary focus when planning. Note also that people frequently ignore Quadrant II ("fire prevention") in favor of Quadrant I ("putting out fires") or, worse yet, the trivial activities of Quadrants III and IV.

      Through maintaining a PRIORITIZED Schedule, with recquires proper MANAGEMENT of the 4 quardrants with a Weekly TIME MANAGEMENT Planner
      one can become the most effective person possible.
      Maintaining a Prioritized schedule is is a constant process best when addressed at the beginning of every week and morning, and updated throughout each day. In every update, one pays attention to:

      Connect to Mission
      Review Roles
      Identify Goals
      Organize Weekly
      Exercise Integrity in the Moment of Choice

      *When I originally read the first 6 habits of this book (2002), I quickly ordered a Classic Compass Wire-bound Weekly Planner from (see link below- it used to be $20 but times have changed). I then prioritized my schedule. My Time management was great, and i maintained that well for about 3 years. Then as I got deeper into college, everything got messed up. So now, its been a good 5 years since properly intergrating the 3rd Habit into my life. All my priorities ahve been jacked up shitty and out of focus. So i I intend to get back on track and to become even better than before now that I have more control, skill, knowledge and power than before.

      Metropolitan Wire-bound Weekly Planner - Black - FranklinCovey

      refill - Metropolitan Wire-bound Weekly Planner - FranklinCovey

      so i'm re-reading, listening to the 3rd Habit in the book, and re-intergrating it into my life. Gonna use just ordered a refill for Jan 2010 ($24 -smh but itll be worth it), and using another old planner i had layin around in the meantime.

      The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Unabridged by Stephen R. Covey Audio Book CD

      Brand New (still shrink wrapped): 14 hours 13 CDs UNABRIDGED

      What inspires outstanding personal achievement day in and day out? Do successful people really do things differently?

      They certainly do, says acclaimed author Stephen Covey. And in this powerful audio program, based on his New York Times #1 best seller, he reveals the 7 habits all successful people share and shows you how to make them a part of your everyday life. Learn the timeless value of the character ethic and create your own paradigm shift. Unlock new levels of thinking and perception to create new areas of achievement and fulfillment. You'll be able to concentrate your efforts to exceed your goals, renew yourself continuously both physically and mentally, master time management and gain many other benefits.

      About the Author Stephen R Covey:

      Stephen R. Covey (born October 24 1932 in Salt Lake City, Utah) is the author of the bestselling book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, as well as other books (First Things First, Principle -Centered Leadership). He is the founder of the Covey Leadership Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is the "Covey" of the Franklin-Covey Corporation, which makes planners and organizers and does management consulting. He has his BS in Business Administration from University of Utah in Salt Lake City, his MBA in Business Administration from Harvard University, and his DRE in Church History and Doctorate from Brigham Young University.

      The Seven Habits, Covey's most well-known book, was extremely successful and has sold over 15 million copies since first publication in 1989. In this book, Covey argues against what he calls "The Personality Ethic", something he sees as prevalent in many modern self-help books. He instead promotes what he labels "The Character Ethic," which is based largely upon one's principles and code of conduct, specifically:

      * Habit 1: Be Proactive: Principles of Personal Vision - See 42 Confessions
      * Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind: Principles of Personal Leadership - See Egyptian Yoga
      * Habit 3: Put First Things First: Principles of Personal Management -This is where I find the book useful!!
      * Habit 4: Think Win/Win: Principles of Interpersonal Leadership --This is where I find the book useful!!
      * Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood - Obviously African origin
      * Habit 6: Synergize Principles of Creative Communication
      * Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw: Principles of Balanced Self-Renewal - See Egyptian Yoga

      Follow-up titles to The Seven Habits are meant to both add to the original and form a cohesive philosophy on personal, principle-based leadership. They are available as audio books as well. Covey has also written a number of learning books for children.

      Covey's aim is to help others gain proficiency in their lives, especially within the context of business and management and make money doing it. However, his books also emphasize family and personal leadership. They are marketed to a wide-ranging audience, from high-powered executives to stay-at-home mums. Similar authors might include Peter Drucker or David Allen, as well as other more business-centered writers. Covey's works also exhibit a central philosophical ideal, which some would interpret as right of center or conservative, although he was for a time a consultant to President Bill Clinton.

      Critics of Covey's methods contend that the author offers a "quick fix" that dissipates when measured against the reality of day-to-day life. When confronted with situations that contain elements that are outside the realm of their personal influence, those imbued with Covey's summary accountability can become frustrated at the "habits'" failure to place situations within their locus of control. In short, Covey is sometimes said to preach impractical, idealistic methods.

      Advocates of Covey's methods point out that the author consistently opposes "quick-fix" solutions to life or business problems and insists that changes in paradigm or mindset to align with natural principles are the true source of solutions. Covey points out, for example, that the paradigm that produces short-term results in business inevitably leads to an inability to produce results for the long term. He calls this "killing the golden goose." The most effective mindset for the business person is to balance short- and long-term productive capacities.
