The seven habits of highly effective people

18 Apr

The author of the book, “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” is Dr. Stephen Covey.

<The Seven Habits in the book>

  1. Be proactive
  2. Begin with the end in mind
  3. Put first things first
  4. Think win-win
  5. Seek first to understand and then to be understood
  6. Synergize
  7. Sharpen the saw

I think this habits are very useful in my educational career.

In second habit, it said we should know our exact goal in educational career. We should know what we want from this course, how will we use what we learnt from college and how we avoid from distraction. If we know our goal then our educational career will be easy and effective.

In third habit, it said we should do activities which are more important first. This habit will be helpful in our educational career because we have lots of home works, assignment, group project and other activities. If we can assort works which are more important than other works, then we can do our study effectively.

I think this habits also useful in the workplace.

In third habit, it said our works should based on important rather than urgency. This habit is important in work place because we have lots of tasks and works in business and we can help company by finish tasks which are important.

There is other ways to use Social Media Tools for businesses. We can use Social Medai Tools to use as storage of data (Dropbox), help as content management system (Storify), encourage communication between employees (Yammer) and searching the name of brands (Namechecklist).
