Habits of Change, Part 1: Intro to Series

 

Change in all things is sweet.

Aristotle

Stephen Covey wrote a famous book a while back called “7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Powerful Lessons in Personal Change”. It’s a beautiful exercise in understanding human behavior and also how to achieve success.

This book is definitely a “must read” on my personal list of referrals. It led to him writing a series of other really wonderful books, which you’ll see, mentioned on this site. I am a huge fan of his work, mainly because his ideas have profoundly influenced how I see the world and have helped me achieve success in my own life.

The concepts in the book are interrelated and more complex, much more than this blog. For the sake of blogging, for the next few posts, I am focusing on a lighter “fare” of the first 3 habits he outlines. This is what comes to my mind when I hear these phrases, especially in the context of transition and change.

*Stephen Covey defined “habits” as a culmination and inner working of knowledge, skill and desire, (pg. 47).
