The 8th Habit Summary

MicroSummary: An upgrade to his 1988 bestseller, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, “The 8th Habit” by Stephen R. Covey reinforces his belief that the oft-promoted personality ethic is obsolete, and that character ethic means progressing from independence to interdependence. And the 8th habit: find your voice and inspire others to find theirs.

From Effectiveness to Greatness

Plunge into the intensity of progress, with your mind, soul, heart, and body.

Who Should Read “The 8th Habit”? And Why

Covey fights for the power of choice. Every human has four essential elements according to him: body, mind, soul, heart.

The successful people have four extra qualities that cannot be found among ordinary citizens: clear vision, strict discipline, burning passion and moral conscience.

It is not easy being a person with integrity, but that doesn’t have to stop you from becoming one.

The 8th habit intrigues people; it helps them to overcome challenges by encouraging them to implement the fundamental right habits in real life situations.

It is not easy to find a transparent, accurate, and easy going book, written at the highest level. “The 8th Habit” book is helpful for every individual capable of taking the next step in pursuance of self-appreciation and freedom.
