The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

I have had a copy of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People book for years now- actually have more than one copy in my bookshelf. Every time I open the book it is so refreshing and inspiring to the say the least.

I think I need to read this book not like I would any other book but as I would a textbook- memorize to heart and apply the principles.

Here are two quotes I came across:

“The fountain of content must spring up in the mind, and he who hath so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition, will waste his life in fruitless efforts and multiple the grief he proposes to remove.”
-Samuel Johnson

Our character, basically, is a composite of our habits. Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.
