Key Takeaways

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People was first published in 1989. In this 2004 edition author Stephen R. Covey says his seven habits are not outdated but are more important than ever. In fact, the more the world changes, the more important the habits become.
  • Some of the most common challenges people face are fear and insecurity, the desire for instant gratification, blame and victimization, hopelessness, life balance, personal benefits, the need to be understood, conflict and differences, and personal stagnation.
  • Principled solutions exist for every problem in modern culture. These principles are defined later in the book.
  • Covey concedes following his seven habits isn't easy, but people can do so with thoughtful consideration about their actions and guiding principles.
