You can’t solve a problem on the same level that it was created. You have to rise above it to the next level.
I know what you are thinking right now…isn’t the audio book of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People enough? If you had asked me that question in December I would have said yes. But guys this workbook Rocks! I am not one to really get excited about workbooks that come from books because usually they really don’t add much to the message. But this one really builds on your knowledge from the books and can even be used alone if you are familiar with Covey’s work. One of the most important things we can ever do to move us in the direction of our purpose in life is to create a personal mission statement. I have read so many books on this topic and have never really been able to create one to my satisfaction until now.
Covey’s simplicity, yet depth of understanding of personal growth is powerfully evident in this book. It moves us from dependency on the opinions of others, to independence in our personal development to the height of personal development, which is Interdependence. It is in Interdependence that we are able to create a legacy. It is in the creation of a legacy that we are able to utilize our talents and gifts to give back in service to humanity. When we are able to grow in this we are able to move towards wholeness and find meaning in our lives. The answer to “why am I here”?
More and more research is pointing to a great contributor to our personal and societal depression is a “lack of purpose or meaning for our lives”. This is becoming more and more a subject of concern for each generation. Covey’s work is timeless in its ability to reach across generations to answer questions for today that are right on target. I of course can never guarantee but I really believe with all my heart this workbook is a necessity for us all. Especially those of us who are always trying to be our best and continue to grow and progress.
Life is a book and you are its author. You determine its plot and pace and you-only you-turn its pages.
