The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey: Does the Book really represent the 7 Habits, or just a Suggestion to form?

Have you read the book "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen R. Covey? (If you don't have the book, just address me for a copy [at: ]

The book points out towards the following 7 habits:

• Be Proactive
• Begin with the End in Mind Brings
• Put First Things First Promotes
• Think WinWin
• Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood Helps
• Synergize Ensures
• Sharpen the Saw Promotes

I wonder whether the book contains seven principles of effectiveness or really the seven habits of highly effective people of the world, to have been based on some survey or interview of the highly effective people of the world?

valuable views of the members of the forum will be highly appreciated.

I shall also be obliged, if some really effective people express their views quoting the instances of their practical experience, which of these habits they had been using very effectively and what type of diciculties they could experience in enforcing these habits.

Our organization conducts the 7 Habits workshops for all our employees. For us, the communication includes the 7 Habits language as well. It has great results if one succeeds to practice it. Any one habit can be chosen and the others will come along like a thread pulled from a net. :-)

I have written a motivational book, Asaflta Ka Tyag, in Hindi. It is being appreciated everywhere. It is not available on the shelves. Either one can purchase it online or on seminar location.

If one can become HIGHLY EFFECTIVE by practicing these 7 HABITS then, there won't be any value of all those HABITS/TRAITS found in Prophet MOHAMMED (PBUH), the one and only HIGHLY EFFECTIVE, PERFECT PERSONALITY AND SUCCESSFUL PROPHET and a COMMON MAN as well. Nobody else(none of the prophets or any human being on earth) can even dream of matching his personalities.
