Stephen R. Covey is the recognized authority on personal leadership, achieving high performance and creating a culture of trust in organizations. In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, he shares his well-researched insights into how successful people live their lives.
- Focus on effectiveness not efficiency: It’s not just about getting things done, but getting the right things done. Self-mastery is achieved by focusing on what matters most to your life and making that your top priority.
- Identify and focus on your highest priority activities: Understanding what matters most to you helps you decide what actions are of highest importance to achieve your goals and make progress towards them each day.
- Live by the principle of first things first: Putting first things first means prioritizing your tasks based on urgency or importance so you don’t forget anything important while working through the everyday distractions that come up in life.
- Make sure you are working on the right things: Understand which items make up your mission statement in life and prioritize these while eliminating other unnecessary tasks that do not contribute to helping you achieve long-term success.
- Put First Things First by planning each day in advance: Planning out each day allows you to stay focused by keeping all tasks organized around priorities instead of just taking on whatever comes at you next..
- Organize around priorities: As a leader, organize around priorities for yourself as well as for others who report to you so everyone is crystal clear about the big picture goals they are trying to achieve and where their current tasks fit into this bigger picture
