I first read this book over ten years ago and its still one of the most important books I have ever read!

Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People offers a step-by-step guide to forming habits that if followed will make a massive difference to the way you both live and work.

The book is well structured with each chapter covering one of the 7 habits.

Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
Habit 6: Synergize
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw

This books helps you find your own motivations and what is most important to you, it questions them and it helps you fix them and helps you to live.

The habit that most people will have seen before and also the one that I like the most is Habit 4: Think win-win. In my view if everyone based their business decisions solely on this habit they would have far better businesses!

I would put this book on the national curriculum if I could.
