Carefully Designed by You

 Your life doesn’t just “happen.” Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you.

Sound good? It is a sample of the life-transforming insights you can gain from Stephen R. Covey. His website introduction gives an idea of how amazing his books are:

“Recognized as one of Time magazine’s 25 most influential Americans, Stephen R. Covey has dedicated his life to demonstrating how every person can truly control their destiny with profound, yet straightforward guidance.”

This straightforward guidance is in the form of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (#1 Most Influential Business Book of the Twentieth Century). Among the “spin-offs” of this book are:

Each of the seven habits is introduced on this page.

The first of the 7 habits is “Be Proactive.” Does that sound familiar? If so, it may be because you just read about it in Wednesday’s post “Back on Track.”

By the way, I used The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Stephen Covey’s son, Sean, with my junior high students. It is one the books I have bought in quantity to give away to the important young people in my life. I have loaned it to adults because it gives the condensed version of the 7 habits—and is highly entertaining. I love it! I can’t imagine anyone not enjoying this book—and learning something whether they intended to or not. Yeah . . . it’s that kind of book.
