Today we live in a society in constant change and movement, we require them to be a dynamic person both at work and personal, often going through and facing situations of great pressure and stress. Dean Ornish M.D is full of insight into the issues. Over the years we have learned to adapt to this lifestyle so complex, people trying to be effective, seeking to keep up with the information and innovations, we demand too much that sometimes we forget that “we are not machines,” more however much we strive to conduct our activities better and better, and I’m not saying that’s bad, but we forget to give us enough time to stop and think, meditate, analyze and why not to renew as a people we are. We are so afraid of making mistakes or make criticism that we decided to pretend we are and have the ability to perform all activities that demands our routine and often putting our own health, as we have unfolded in a culture where we spend the as long as possible to our work to achieve our goals, forgetting that it is also important to take care of our body, mind and spirit. If people want to be truly effective, and improve our performance at work and in personal life, you may want us to practice “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” which presents the author Stephen R. Covey.
Below is present in every habit that is: Be Proactive: Proactive behavior is the product of our own decisions, based on values. The reactive behavior leads us to blame others, or the circumstances of our own ills. In the Proactive, our effectiveness and happiness is determined by us and by others. Start with one purpose in mind: You start with a clear understanding of where we want to go. First Things First Set: This habit determines how we use and manage our time. It also helps us learn to say “no” in certain circumstances that seem so difficult to answer, teaches us to delegate activities and seek support. Think win / win: The term win / win is the courage and account balance is the balance between respect for us and respect for others is the essence of human interaction, we can no longer handle.
Try to understand and then be understood: Most people want to be included in this habit is very important to listen and be patient and undisturbed for the protagonists end up being us or pretend to know everything based on our personal experiences. Synergy: It is when people communicate with respect and creativity to learn and internalize, seeking a better solution than those proposed by each one individually. Sharpen the Saw: Take time to care and cultivation also, means renewing the four dimensions of your nature: physical, spiritual, mental and social / emotional. These seven habits are very clear and easy to follow, just a matter that the very person has the initiative to implement them, knowing that we will achieve good and better results in our behavior.
