Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

This is a famous book by Stephen Covey. It continues to have a transforming impact in my life.

I internalized the Quadrant-2 approach to time management that Covey espouses, and it has given me a lot of success in the last two years.

This post is a tribute to this good book.

Then, looking deeper, it is interesting to see how the approaches to personal effectiveness from the western world are moving towards the ideas from the eastern philosophies. The holistic approach to personality development, focus on personal integrity and ‘duty’, the emphasis on balance between roles in life – all these remind me of Bhagavad Gita and writings of Swami Vivekananda.
