ENDORSEMENTS "Every so often a book comes along that not only alters the lives of readers but leaves an imprint on the culture itself. The 7 Habits is one of those books." --Daniel Pink, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human "The 7 Habits encompass timeless principles that can help guide any company toward success." --Tony Hsieh, New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of Zappos.com, Inc. "There are very few business books that are essential reading for anyone who wants to make a difference. This is one of the great ones." --Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception "No person lasts forever, but books and ideas can endure. Stephen R. Covey's life is done, but his work is not. It continues, right here in this book as alive today as when first written." --Jim Collins "Twenty-five years after it first appeared, the wisdom of The 7 Habits is more relevant than ever. On an individual level people are burning out, and on a collective level we are burning up the planet.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change Reviews
- Hon, did you sleep okay? You look kinda weird.
- Well, I don't know how to say this...
- I had this dream where I talked with God.
- Was She black?
- No, I'm serious! I did! It was, like, utterly real. It was the most real thing that's ever happened to me.

I found this book a bit condescending and with too much of a religious feel to it. It also felt a little insincere and manipulative. I remember that everyone was reading it and swearing by it and that the author must have made millions on seminars and the like, but I found it too close to a cultish mentality and was unsurprised when several adepts of the book later tried dragging me in to pyramid schemes like Amway. Empty platitudes are not really incredibly useful. Read GTD instead!
"العادات السبع" أحد أشهر كتابين في إدارة الأعمال، وثانيهما هو "دع القلق وأبدأ الحياة" لدايل كارنيجي.
يبدأ كوفي حديثه بالتأكيد على أنه لا يخترع العجلة من البداية؛ كما أنه لم يخترع العادات السبع التي يذكرها في كتابه، لكنه فقط يضعها في منظومة وبترتيب حتى يسهل استخدامها.
يؤكد كوفي على أهمية التغيير الداخلي للفرد، لأن الإنسان لن يتغير إلا إذا أراد هو ذلك، كما يؤكد على المفاهيم الدينية والأخلاقية للإنسان في العمل والحياة. أصبت بالاستغراب نوعا ما نظرا لاهتمامه بالعنصر الديني المسيحي اليهودي، إذ يشتهر مع ...more
This book explains 7 principles that make a person more effective personally and professionally. Covey shows how a principle-centered, character-based life helps you build the healthy relationships that are key to an effective life. This classic is well worth reading for its perspective and practical advice.
Correct Principles: Covey frequently references his Christianity. He says the Habits are based on "Correct Principles" (aka Natural Law) found in Judeo-Christian scriptures and common ...more
I'm not able to rate this fairly as a reader coming to it in 2017. This was one of the first "personal development" books, and the other 4 thousand books I've read on the topic all borrow from it heavily. The thing is, they borrow from it, and then make it better in every way: more interesting, more relevant, better writing, more concise writing, better anecdotes and examples.
This is a classic, but I don't recommend reading it.
النسخه المترجمه كارثه من كوارث الزمان
جعلتنى اكره الكتاب واكره المؤلف واكره القراءه بذاتها
"تتكون شخصيتنا في الأساس من عاداتنا , تزرع فكرة تحصد عملاً , وتزرع عملاً تحصد عادة , وتزرع عادة تحصد شخصية , وتزرع شخصية تحصد مصيراً "
واضح أن الكاتب بذل جهداً بحثياً كبيراً , لكن برأيي سببت كثرة المعلومات الغير مهمة وتفاصيل التفاصيل والتكرار بأن تكون النتيجة ( حشو كلام مع قليل من الفائدة) , فهو يذكر مبادئ العادة والمشاعر ومسبباتها أكثر من أن يذكر طرق لتعزيز عادة حميدة أو مكافحة عادة سيئة , فمثلا مالذي يهمني أنا كقارئ أن أعرف عند حديثي مع الغير أن مايعمل الأن من المخ هو الفص الأيمن أو الأيسر ! ...more
I bought The Seven Habits at a yard sale for $1 with little knowledge of its contents. Years later, when my life dipped to a low ebb of meaning and motivation, I picked it off the shelf in hopes of finding a spark. Inside I found wisdom, compassion, a direct approach and a love of humanity.
The result wasn't immediately transformative. The methods and techniques Covey espouses didn't fall into place and turn me into a whirlwind of positive productivity. Reading The Seven Habits was just one of m ...more
