“The Way We See the Problem is the Problem.” I agree with this one hundred percent but being told how to reframe it and take another approach without revealing the mechanism of the thought process behind it will only work with some people. Something I have found to be consistent with all people is teaching them the mechanism of how thought emotion and behavior work as opposed to trying to tell them what to do which I think would integrate perfectly with the principals of 7 Habits. An example of one of those mechanisms is our internal dialogue which runs at approximately one thousand to twelve hundred words per minute which is about four times faster then we can speak. This internal dialogue is generated in large part by our self-questioning Following is the mechanism.
Question: Do we ask ourselves questions?
Question: Does the subconscious work on those questions when we are not consciously involved.
Example: If you see someone you know or an actor you are familiar with and ask yourself “What is their name?” You may not get an answer right away, but in an hour or two or maybe even the next day their name will pop into your head as clear as day.
Internal dialogue is the first and most important thing we can use to change any circumstance. Getting back to “The Way We See the Problem is the Problem.” the first two questions need to be “What can I learn from this” and “How can I use this to move more quickly toward my objectives?”
Now that you understand that you ask questions and the subconscious will work on those questions when you are not consciously involved “How important is the structure of the questions you ask yourself? ” The structure is extremely important because if you ask yourself “Why can't I resolve this issue” what do you think the results will be? The result will be negative because the question is in a negative context.
The 7 habits make perfect sense but for most consistent implementation will be an issue. There are many moving parts when initiating change or causing a paradigm shift especially if a programmed pattern is 10, 20 or 30 years old. Internal dialogue especially in the form questions, however, is the absolute foundation for initiating and maintaining this shift. Following are some of the questions I use for each of the 7 Habits.
Habit 1: Be Proactive
What action can I take every day to move as quickly as possible toward my objective?
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Everything we do in life produces a result, so the key question for Habit 2 is…
What result do I want to produce?”
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Within the FEF™ process, there are two keywords which determine one's objectives and define what needs to be put first, and they are “Absolute Must,” so the key question for Habit 3 is…
What are my Absolute Musts or what are my Absolute Musts for today?
Habit 4: Think Win/Win
The Win/Win scenario can be accomplished if one has the ability to use every life experience good or bad. This can be done with the two key questions I mentioned earlier.
What can I learn from this? and
How can I use this to move more quickly toward my objectives?
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
How can I make sure I have a comprehensive understanding of the people I serve and the objectives I believe will serve them?
How can I make sure I am communicating my services in the best way possible?
Habit 6: Synergize
In the days of social media, there are many questions regarding Habit 6.
Will social media create the synergistic relationships I need to achieve my objectives?
What do I need to do to create the synergistic personal relationships that will move me quickly toward my objectives?
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
In this chapter, Covey reiterates the importance of physical-spiritual mental and social/emotional. I agree on the context but not the order and everything that is included. How we feel about everything in our lives will determine whether we move toward them or not so for me emotion is the most important and this encompasses the mind or what Covey refers to as mental. When establishing objectives in Functional Emotional Fitness™, there are four categories which cover all human objectives and they are “Love, Health, Wealth and Self-Image” which I feel clearly defines the full spectrum of what one needs to keep sharp. You can, however, use Coeys or your own within the context of the following question.
How can I make sure my Love, Health, Wealth and Self-Image are clearly defined and operating in the 90 plus percent range?
If you need to generate more questions to make sure you are keeping the saw as sharp as possible simply ask yourself “What questions do I need to ask myself .about Habit 1 or 2 or 3 or 7?”
Given the current science on the influence of the gut over our thought processes keeping the saw sharp might need to be addressed first. Whatever the case the 7 Habits is a rock solid foundation.
There is a core message evident throughout the book that I found very moving, and kept me coming back to it over the years: Humans are strongest when we work together. To work together we must love each other. To love each other we must listen. To be able to listen with open hearts, we must first learn to love and trust ourselves.
Note that the title is "The 7 Habits of Highly EFFECTIVE People". Not "successful" or even "influential". Because effectiveness depends not on how you appear to other people, but how well you accomplish your personal goals. To be effective, you must have a thorough understanding of what your goals ARE, and what tools you personally have at your disposal to reach them.
Long and short of it: it's a great book. I apply things I have learned from it to every aspect of my life, as a mother, wife, professional, and friend.
So...what is my reservation? Why four stars instead of five? Covey, possibly inadvertently, strikes a pretty sore spot for me, that I think I may share with a lot of people who grew up in the Evangelical Christian Church. He frequently references "correct principles" and at times displays rigid attitudes toward s*xuality and "vulgarity" (whatever that means). These are what we might now call "dog whistle" terms--they are strongly associated with a movement that has grown more radical and politicized over the last two decades. Covey is a Christian, of course, and openly states that he believes "correct principles" and in fact the whole idea of conscience originate from God. I don't think Covey is a radical--he references other religions in addition to Christianity, and his whole approach would seem to indicate a general disapproval of politics--but these "dog whistles" still made me uncomfortable. The idea of "correct principles", in particular, seems patriarchal, or at the very least implies a rigidity of thought. What he really means by it would seem to be, in much softer terms, "the laws of natural consequences" or perhaps, "Go with what works."
