WHY DO I LOVE STEPHEN COVEY’S 7 HABITS

Yes, it takes time to exercise, and takes nothing to spend a whole day or week or month in a doctor’s chamber, nursing home or hospital.

Yes, it takes time to read a good book, than to waste days and weeks preparing a boring and mechanical, and methodical keynote address for international seminars.

And the 7 habits are far far remove from Norman Vincent Peale’s Courage and Confidence. In Peale God is all, and in Covey Woman/ Man alone strives her/ his destiny

 

Answer: Covey lays absolute stress on WO/MAN and not its Creator(S), and that’s the sole reason, friends!

Hi, friends, now let’s briefly describe Covey’s 7 habits:

Habit 1. Be proactive,and not reactive

Don’t shed gallons of tears for something (e. g. inflation, poverty, global warming, etc.) that’s beyond your control. Rather concentrate more on you and what can you do to manage the unforeseen situations in a meaningful way.

Habit 2. Begin with the end in mind

Ask yourself, what I’m doing with my life? Am I doing something that adds some kind of values to society we live in. Or simply we live for hoarding money and all… Shock yourself with questions like, Am I a good parent, a good individual? And think of the end that your beginning oneday leads you to. (e.g. drink and smoke and suffer in old age, or eat good and exercise and pass the old days apeace) Choice is yours!

Habit 3. Put first things first

Ask yourself, What do I love more? family, children, friends, walking, or watching t.v, facebooking, organising papers. And see we always tend to spend more time with the things of our secondary choice, neglecting the primary ones.

Habit 4. Think win win

We don’t need competition. We need cooperation. Do something good, and share your ideas so that other can also benefited. For your win, I must not have to lose. It’s all win win game. Bring a change in your mental landscape, and see the wonders.

Habit 5. First understand, and then to be understood

Who cares for you? Who cares for what you doing? The question is, does it offer value to society. That’s the question. Nobody bothers, and people don’t have time to think about you. First listen and understand, and then you may be understood. In India, everybody from prime minister to peon is shouting and hallooing. Who cares?

Habit 6. Synergy

Simply put, what you cannot achieve alone, can be achieved by a team of dedicated souls. You need help from people around you to succeed in life, and in turn they also need you. Together we can make possible the impossible.

Habit 7. Sharpen the saw

There is the wonderful story. A woodcutter cuts a trees with a blunt saw. He spends hours after hours, but the tree has no desire to fall. Then a passerby asks the woodcutter to sharp his saw. The woodcutter says, “It takes time.”

Yes, it takes time to exercise, and takes nothing to spend a whole day or week or month in a doctor’s chamber, nursing home or hospital.

Yes, it takes time to read a good book, than to waste days and weeks preparing a boring and mechanical, and methodical keynote address for international seminars.

And the 7 habits are far far remove from Norman Vincent Peale’s Courage and Confidence. In Peale God is all, and in Covey Woman/ Man alone strives her/ his destiny

Have happy and nice reading!

RHAPSODIES OF A TWILIGHT

A twilight scene at Kadambini Tea Estate planted long long ago by the colonial masters.
Birds sang, the sun sank, and tribal men went hutwards.

Standing on a pot holed street at Kadambini Tea Estate I saw the orange disc sinking on

the horizon.

Bikes whizzed past, and soiled the plants and me,

The green tea leaves shrouded with thick layers of dust

Tribal men paddling hutwards slow, some with dry hays and twigs, a few with wives and

children in colourful dress on their back.

Birds chirping, ah! heard such cacophonies never–

Some coo, some che che che, ghrur ghrur, tuk tik, kaeak, grurururur, kaek kaek kaek,

chik chik,krur krur, trur trur trurrr rapid, uek uek, ka ka ka, quick quick, chrik chrik

alone, one or two faintly calling,

A new long kieech kieech from a sleepy unknown continued.

Mosquitoes buzzed around ears, and miniscule dot-shaped worms hovered over head

with persistence. such recalcitrant they were.

Kadambini Tea Garden, Alipurduar, West Bengal (Dooars)

Light long gone and darkness thickened

The doleful call of mournful muezzin wafted the neighbourhood yonder.

Car with patients shut blinded the street with dust

Rain trees stood naked, and silent,

Mists laced the yonder trees, and hazied them

A truck lumbered past

I felt cold

No air blew, so calm and quiet all

Broken by the birds distant cries

Alone, a while past

Sun set, a few unseen birds calling still.

Dews fell, and dust softened

Cuckoos cooed , crickets sang

Songs of the birds slowed and rare,

Stray goats bleat and homeward gone with jingling bells

Birds stopped, not all, only a hoarse kae kae kae occasionally heard.

Others fell asleep,

But yonder the cuckoos cooing still

Vision blurred, birds slept

Fire burnt in the yards.
