The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Habit 3 – Put First Things First
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a self-improvement book, which emphasizes our perceptions about everything around us and how it affects a situation, a person, and how we must be open to change them.
A Brief Summary:
It starts with a very interesting exercise which helps you evaluate yourself. Habit 3 is a personal fruit and a practical fulfillment of Habits 1 and 2.
In habit 3 we deal with many of the questions addressed in the field of life and time management. Organize and execute around priorities. That phrase represents the evolution of three generations of time management theory, and how to best do it is the focus of a wide variety of approaches and materials.
It talks about Quadrants and how we experience that we cannot move to another quadrants ignoring important activities of other quadrants. To make each quadrant work for you , you have to work on each of them proactively.
You will understand what it takes to say NO if you don’t have a bigger yes to replace it. It is only when you have the self-awareness to examine your program and the imagination to create a new principle-centered program for you, then you can confidently say no to things and people.
1.) Organising work/goals/tasks.
2.) Time management
3.) Commit yourself and setup a regular time to finish your tasks.
I will share the next effective habit soon.
Much love and gratitude
