The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” is one of the best-selling books of all time and it has inspired millions of readers. This book is successful because it doesn’t rely on changeable trends instead it’s written based on timeless principles of human nature which can be suitable for anyone. However, this book is very long and the content inside is not very digestible, so A8 Resource created this summary to help you get core ideas from the book for you to easy go through. 7 Habits of Highly Effective People are:

Habit 1: Be Proactive

  • Be responsible for what happens in your life instead of blaming external environment
  • Focus your energy and effort on what you can control and influence

Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind

  • Visualize who you are and what you want in life or else, the others will do it for you
  • Create your personal mission and vision statement as it’ll be your life compass

Habit 3: Put First Things First

  • Reorganize your to-do-list and identify what is worth putting energy in
  • Prioritize important things and eliminate unnecessary ones by their urgency and importance

Habit 4: Think Win-Win

  • Understand that others’ success will foster your personal success
  • Perceive life as a cooperative arena, not a competitive one

Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

  • Avoid imposing your own perspective on the others
  • Listen with the intent to understand not just to reply

Habit 6: Synergize

  • It simply means that 1+1 can actually equal 3 or more if you work together
  • Tackling a challenge, using everyone’s separate strengths is the best solution
  • You need to understand, trust and respect each other to practice synergy

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw

  • Give yourself time to recharge instead of totally burning yourself out by overdoing everything
  • Eating healthy food, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, reading books are what you should do to care for yourself mentally and physically.
