Bugle Calls
Issue No. 1024
June 2015

Bob Bugle-B-1001 Periodically throughout the past 12 months we've introduced or reacquainted readers with Dr. Stephen Covey, author of a number of acclaimed books, including the international best seller, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People".

Our first topic was appropriately, Habit 1 "Be Proactive". "As human beings we are responsible for our own lives. Our behaviors, and the consequences of those behaviors, are a function of our decisions, not our conditions."

We've since covered Habit 2 "Begin with the End in Mind", Habit # 3 "Put First Things First",  Habit 4 "Think Win-Win", Habit # 5 "Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood" and Habit # 6 "Synergize".

Our main topic for June is Habit # 7, "Sharpen the Saw". Simply put, "Sharpening the Saw" entails preserving and enhancing the greatest asset we have; ourselves! It's constantly renewing the four dimensions of our nature; Physical, Spiritual, Mental and Social/Emotional. Only by exercising all four dimensions of our nature on a regular basis can we achieve "Life Balance".

"7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Dr. Stephen R. Covey
Analysis by Bob Bugle

"Habits are powerful factors in our lives. Because they are consistent, often Stephen R. Covey, the motivational speaker best known for the book The Seveunconscious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character and produce our effectiveness...or ineffectiveness." Dr. Covey
Dr. Covey defines a habit as the intersection of knowledge (what to do), skill (how to do it) and desire (wanting to do it). Unless all three elements are involved, a good habit will never be formed.
