To recap the video, here are the 7 habits of highly effective people:

  1. Be proactive. Take responsibility and know you’re in charge.
  2. Start with the end in mind. Have an end goal.
  3. Put first things first. Do important and non-urgent things first.
  4. Think win-win. Find situations where everyone wins.
  5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood. Listen before you start talking.
  6. Synergize. 1+1=3.
  7. Sharpen the saw. Invest in yourself for the best ROI.
