and other ramblings of a small business owner
I’m sorry to say that I’m going to have to admit defeat… for the second time with this book. I really wanted to love The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven R Covey. It’s a real classic and I know there are many many people who swear by it. But I’m afraid I just can’t get through it.
A book like this should be a pleasure to read – you should be able to whizz through it and feel inspired to put it into practice. Unfortunately it’s having the opposite effect on me – I’m finding it too dense and have had to force myself to pick it up each time. So, less than half way through I’m giving up.
I’m sure it must be me and not the book. I really do want to be a highly effective person but I suspect that there are ways of getting the message across that will suit me better. Might have to head back over to Michael Heppel, who I know applies some of Stephen Covey’s techniques – but in a more Emily-friendly way.
