I love Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Successful People:
1. Be Proactive – Take responsibility for your life.
2. Begin with the End in Mind – Define your mission and goals in life.
3. Put First Things First – Prioritize, and do the most important things first.
4. Think Win-Win – Have an everyone-can-win attitude.
5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood. – Listen to people sincerely.
6. Synergies – Work together to achieve more.
7. Sharpen the Saw – Renew yourself regularly.
