The 8th Habit

I can't even get a handle on the Seven Habits, and Stephen Covey has published a new book detailing the Eighth Habit of Highly Effective People.

Here are the Eight Habits:
  • Be proactive. (Take initiative, be responsible.)

  • Begin with the end in mind. (Develop a mental image of how projects, including your life, will turn out.)

  • Put first things first. (Use discipline to put off today's pleasures for greater future pleasures.)

  • Think win/win. (There's plenty for all.)

  • Seek first to understand, then to be understood. (Listen more, speak less.)

  • Synergize. (The whole is greater than the parts.)

  • Sharpen the saw. (Improve physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.)

  • Find your voice, and inspire others to find theirs. (Don't ignore that longing to make a difference.)
I'm still on the first three habits... ;-) How can I get to number eight?
