As our weekly ritual of completing a book every wednesday, this week we delve in to 7 habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. All of our associates in Tahmidur Rahman – Law Firm in Dhaka, Bangladesh, immensely enjoyed the book and we belive you will too!
The 7 important Habits which will change your life for better
This book’s key message:
Follow these seven habits of highly effective people for enduring effectiveness throughout your career and life:
1. Be proactive:
You have a natural need to influence the world around you, so don’t just respond to external events and circumstances. Take responsibility for your life and take responsibility for it.
2. Start with an end in mind:
Don’t go aimlessly spend your life working, tackling anything that comes to hand. Have a vision of the future and align your actions to make it a reality.
3. Put the most important things first:
Focus on what’s important to focus your work, meaning the things that bring you closer to your vision of the future. Don’t be distracted by urgency or ultimately irrelevant

4. Consider or look for the win – win:
Do not seek to get the biggest slice of the pie while bargaining with others, but rather find a compromise that is acceptable to all parties and advantageous. In the end, you will still earn your fair share and build strong positive relationships.
5. Try to understand first, then to be understood:
When someone poses a question to us, we always leap straight to suggest a solution. This is an error. Next, we will take the time to listen to the other person and then make recommendations.
Adopt the guiding principle that many’s contributions will far outweigh the cumulative amount of individual contributions. This will help you achieve goals that you have never been able to achieve on your own.
7. Sharpen the Saw:
Don’t work to death. Strive for a sustainable lifestyle that allows you time to recover and refresh in order to remain effective in the long run.
