It’s late on Tuesday evening and Its been a very busy day.  #TuesdayBlogRelease “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” by Dr. Stephen R. Covey, a very good book. If you are looking to take your business\ personal life to another level, I highly recommend it. It is well worth the read! #read #learn #grow   #PersonalDevelopment

“Education doesn’t cease when you leave college or leave the university. Education is a lifetime process.” — Jim Rohn

Here are a few of my notes from the book study, Habit 7 (Enjoy);

  • To be effective, we must devote the time to renewing ourselves physically, spiritually, mentally, and socially. Continuous renewal allows us to synergistically increase our ability to practice each habit.
  • Habit 7 is focused around renewal, or taking time to “sharpen the saw.”  It surrounds all of the other habits and makes each one possible by preserving and enhancing your greatest asset – yourself.

There are four dimensions of our nature, and each must be exercised regularly, and in balanced ways:

  1. Physical
  2. Spiritual
  3. Mental
  4. Social\Emotional

As we focus on renewing ourselves along these four dimensions, we must also seek to be a positive scripter for other people. We must look to inspire others to a higher path by showing them we believe in them, by listening to them empathically, by encouraging them to be proactive.

Renewal is the process that empowers us to move along an upward spiral of growth and change, of continuous improvement. Always remember, Your Best Days Are Ahead!!! #BelieveIt #ReceiveIt #WalkItOut
