About the Book:

The greatest stumbling block to getting important things accomplished is the interruption of our work time by seemingly urgent matters which are actually unimportant distractions. In what's probably the ultimate entrepreneurial management book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, author Stephen Covey describes an approach to being effective in attaining goals by aligning oneself to what he calls the "true north" principles of a character ethic that are universal and timeless. Upon closer inspection, these principles, or "habits" as he terms them, can equally apply to acting, writing, and directing. As an actor you must be able to set goals for your career. A goal can be as simple as learning a new monologue, saving up for new headshots, or a longer-term goal of becoming a series regular.

From the oval office, the board room, community halls and to the school house and family room, Stephen Covey taught the mindset, skill-set and tool-set found in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, his seminal work. His legacy is woven in the 7 habits that will definitely help you achieve sustained superior results:

Step 1. Be proactive
Step 2. Begin with the End in Mind
Step 3. Put First Things First
Step 4. Think Win-Win
Step 5. Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
Step 6. Synergize
Step 7. Sharpen the Saw

Over his lifetime, Stephen R. Covey transformed the lives of Presidents and CEOs, actors, writers, directors, educators and parents with the power of universal principles – in short, millions of people of all ages and occupations. As he travelled the globe many times over, his message was a simple one: for true success and meaning in life, we must be principle-centered in all areas of life. A teacher at heart, he often taught: "there are three constants in life: change, choice and principles."

Recognized as one of Time magazine's 25 most influential Americans, Stephen R. Covey was one of the world's foremost leadership authorities, organizational experts, and thought leaders. Forbes magazine named The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People one of the top 10 most influential management books ever. Now, this 30th anniversary edition of the timeless classic commemorates the wisdom of the 7 Habits with modern additions from Sean Covey.
