Sample Reader Response In the first chapter of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People , the author, Stephen Covey, introduces ideas and concepts that will help us understand what he believes are the seven basic principles to achieving happiness—also known as the Seven Habits. I’ll summarize these concepts, as well as provide my own feedback and thoughts. In the first chapter, “Inside Out,” the author explains how during his research he discovered two different sets of principles—the Character Ethic and Personality Ethic. The Character Ethic teaches that there are basic principles of effective living, and only when these principles are integrated into our character can we achieve happiness. The Personality Ethic teaches that certain techniques (used to influence people into doing what you want), attitudes and a particular public image can result in happiness. Although these techniques may work, they doesn’t result in long-term success. At some point, your manipulation will become apparent, resulting in your loss of credibility.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
