لا يحبذ كثير من القراء هذا النوع من الكتب لسببين: أن محتواها عبارة عن مواد موجودة في كتب أخرى لنفس المؤلف. والسبب الثاني أن كثير من هذه الكتب الغرض من نشرها تجاري بحت؛ استغلالاً لشهرة الكاتب وشيوع مؤلفاته. وعموماً الكتاب قد يناسب نوعية معينة من القراء تحب قراءة المعلومة/ المقولة بشكل مبسط دون تعقيد أو تفصيل اعتاد عليه القارئ المتمرس. والكتاب جيد في العموم، ويؤخذ محتواه كمقولات محفزة ومنشطة. وأنصح القراء باصطحابه إلى أعمالهم وقراءته في أوقات فراغهم كما فعلت أنا.

المسئولية تولد القدرة على الشجان

تحميل الناس المسئولية ليس انتقاصا من قدراتهم وانما ايمانا بهم

حماية الناس من العواقب الطبيعية للأمور تعلمهم عدم المسئولية

دون انهماك لا يكون هناك التزام

أي شخص يحدث اختلافا حقيقيا نحو الأفضل أو الأسوء يمتلك ثلاث صفات مشتركة : الرؤية ، الانضباط والشغف

أهم عمل نقوم به في حياتنا بأكملها وفي عالمنا بأكمله يتم داخل جدران منازلنا الأربعة.

الطريق الحقيقية الوحيدة لتعزيز أي علاقة متوترة تقوم على أسس فردية أي أن تذهب إلى ذلك الشخص لكي تتصالح معه ، أو أن تناقش الأمر أو أن

الصراحة الكتاب جميل
بس عن نفسي انا مبحبش الكتب التي تحتوي فقط علي كلمات/حكم مأثورة أو إقتباسات من كتب أو ما بسمي بالQuotes.
بحب أكثر أقرأ موضوع متكامل في فصل من كتاب، أحس أنني أستفيد بالوضع الثاني أكثر

كان كتاب مالهم وهو خلاصة كتب ستيفن ، هذا الشخص المميز المبدع.

هذا النوع من الكتب لا تقرأ دفعة واحدة، بل هو دواء فأنظر ما مرضك أو ما ينقصك أولا، ثم إبحث عن الدواء من الفهرس.

ربما إعادة ترتيب الحكم وفق نظام أفضل، سوف يجعل الكتاب مميز ايضا.

Covey's family wrote a book of the father's best teachings. They cover areas such as Vision, Win-Win, Synergy, Living by Principles, and Leadership. The book is a good summary of Covey's writings, and is useful for all people, in all walks of life, anywhere!

في كل سنة ابدأ بكتاب صغير الحجم لكي يحفزني على القراءة ، كتاب ستيفن رائع جدا فهو ملخص لجميع كتبه و الكتاب يتضمن مقولات مقتبسة من جميع كتبه ، الكتاب محفزا بجميع انواع المقاييس يتضمن العديد من القصص المحفزة التي قد تقع لكل منا عند فشله في شيء ما.
الراحل كوفي ترك حكم وتعاليم تستحق القراءة.

I really liked Covey's 7 habits book so I thought this would elaborate more on his "wisdom" but it basically is a Cliff's Notes on his book. I did enjoy being reminded of some of the stories and examples he shared in his book, but I was hoping for some more detail on his thoughts.

The Wisdom & Teachings of Stephen R. Covey is a cool collection of quotes and stories taken not only from his various books but also from speaking engagements, articles, interviews or other materials. The books is divided into chapters focusing on a key principle or segment of life such as Integrity, Leadership, Proactivity, etc.

For those who have previously read any of Dr. Covey's work you will find yourself immediately reminded of the core principles and insights that his works teach. I

Several years ago I'm so luckily could have read Dr Covey's book "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" and being influence quite a lot, especially the benefits from focusing and spending most of the time on things that are "Important but not urgent"! And I began to read more books written by Dr Covey.

I really like this book as it summarised many of his wisdom quotations and among those 18 principles I do love the following three quotations from principles of learning, self-discipline and

This book is a collection of Stephen Covey's writings that was given to me by my uncle for my birthday (2013). There are many principles love, courage, trust and for me as someone who likes to dive deep on one topic I was just warming up when the next chapter started. One of my favorites from the book was the quote "Always Treat Your Employes Exactly As You Want Them TO Treat Your Best Customers." I think that is a vantage point that I rarely hear but is important. Also, I did like to see ...more

الكتاب كان ملهم بعض الشيء, لكن بالرغم من ذلك كان في الكتاب بعض السلبيات ومنها:
1- بعض المقولات التي قام بتدوينها الكاتب سطحية وليست متعمقة لكي تصل إلى الذات لتطورها.
2- بعض المقولات كانت طويلة وركيكة في المعنى, أي أنها بالرغم من طولها إلا أنها لا توصل المعنى بشكل واضح للقارئ.
3- اختلفت مع الكاتب في قليل من النقاط, ومنها:
ذكر في كتابه "يبدو أن كثيرا من الناس يعتقدون أن النجاح في جانب من الحياة قادر على تعويض الفشل في جانب آخر. ولكن هل هذا ممكن؟ الفعالية الحقيقية تتطلب الموازنة." تعليقي على هذه

5 stars is typically super-crush material, whereas here I can perhaps drift in & out. But for what it is - a very brief & neatly organized volume of quotes from one man's career (well, life) - I just found so much awakening that it'd just be crazy to offer anything less. Either as a one-sitting, or a very short chapter a day, I highly recommend it.

"Center your life on principles. Principles don't react to anything. They won't divorce us or run away with our best friend. They aren't out to get us. They can't pave our way with shortcuts and quick fixes. They don't depend on the behavior of others, the environment, or the current fad for their validity. Principles don't lie. They aren't here one day and gone the next."

Membuktikan jika Covey memang salah satu orang paling berpengaruh di dunia. Favorit saya adalah bagian "Prinsip Pilihan". Bab yang singkat dan ditambah dengan petikan beberapa kalimat dari beberapa bukunya membuat buku ini tidak membosankan dibaca tetapi maknanya tetap didapatkan.
Elle Kay
A really interesting book comprising of 150 pages of Mr Coveys best snippets of wisdom. There is something for everyone in there and it was just a nice book to have on hand and to delve into for a few minutes every now and then.
Prasanjeet Specter
Indeed his teachings are more than help to us.
This particular compilation can be proved to be a bliss for a quick pep-up and motivation.

With his important clauses jumped up to form an imp. hand book. I say it made me succumb from owning this.
Peter Peerdeman
For me it was a nice recap for the lessons i learned in coveys 7 habits last year. For a first time read, the stack of quotes is too dense and misses the backstories / context given in the books they originate from.

Didn't actually read this one. Place holder for The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Marriages. Audiobook version. Was disappointed by the lack of application of the 7 Habits to marriage. Had some good insights and examples, but I was expecting more.
