DESCRIPTION OF THE ORIGINAL BOOK: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, first published in 1988, is a business and self-help book written by Stephen R. Covey. Covey presents an approach to being effective in attaining goals by aligning oneself to what he calls "true north" principles of a character ethic that he presents as universal and timeless. Covey defines effectiveness as balancing obtaining desirable results with caring for that which produces the desirable results. He illustrates this by referring to the fable of the "Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs". He further claims that effectiveness can be expressed in terms of the P/PC ratio, where P refers to getting desired results and PC is caring for that which produces the results.

About the Author
ABOUT SAPIENS EDITORIAL: Books are mentors. Books can guide what we do and our lives. Many of us love books while reading them and maybe they will echo with us a few weeks after but 2 years later we can't remember if we have read it or not. And that's a shame. We remember that at that time, the book meant a lot to us. Why is it that 2 years later we have forgotten everything? That's not good. This summary is taken from the most important themes of the original book. Most people don't like books. People just want to know what the book says they have to do. If you trust the source you don't need the arguments. So much of a book is arguing its points, but often you don't need the argument if you trust the source you can just get the point. This summary takes the effort to distill the blahs into themes for the people who are just not going to read the whole book. All this information is in the original book.
