Most Helpful

The habits in action

What made the experience of listening to Living the 7 Habits the most enjoyable?

Being able to hear real stories of the habits in action. I've listened to/read "The 7 Habits..." countless times. Hearing how everyday people have applied them to their situations makes me want to work harder at applying them in my life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I could relate to the father in the story called, "Because."

What about Stephen R. Covey’s performance did you like?

His kind, gentle and thorough manner in laying out the details of the habits makes for very easy listening.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Referring back to the story, "Because." Being the father of a 10-year-old daughter myself, this story made me think even more about how I must always work to improve the relationship I have with my daughter. Too many father's are absent in the lives of their daughters and it without a doubt has a detrimental effect on their growing up to be strong, confident women. The world needs more strong, male role models.

Any additional comments?

Be aware that this is an abridged version of the actual book. Not every story in the book is on this audio program. But don't let that stop you. It's a great motivator when you're feeling stuck.
