An overview of the 7 Habits
The 7 Habits provides an integrated framework for becoming more effective, based on paradigms, principles and personal habits. Your character is a composite of your habits, and the 7 Habits approach is for you to move progressively from dependence to independence, and then ultimately to interdependence.
Habits 1, 2, and 3 deal with self-mastery. These are the private victories, which always must precede the public victories you hope to have in the future. Private victories are the essence of character growth. Achievements always come from the inside-out. If you're trying to generate success from the outside-in, that's like trying to harvest a crop before you plant it.
Habits 4,5, and 6 form the basis for true independence. These are the public victories of teamwork, cooperation, and communication. Interdependence can only be built on a foundation of true independence. You can't be successful working with other people if you haven't paid the price of success with yourself first. Interdependence is a choice only independent people can make.
Habit 7 is about collaboration. You take time on a regular basis to renew and refresh your personal stores of energy, and then look outwards for opportunities to collaborate and create with others. You work from the inside-out (character-driven) rather than the outside-in (circumstances-driven). By centering your life and career on correct principles rather than quick fixes, you become empowered to do more and be more.
