Extra Habit: Setting and Achieving Goals Pavan Kumar Rathore, Qatar, Member I accept that the good habits are necessary to building positive self-esteem and image, it is a universal truth. The Seven Habits model developed by Mr. Stephen Covey is really practical in human being for successive live and very important for total quality people.
I would like to append one more (9th) habit is that "setting and achieving goals". One should scrutinize their goals and make plans to achieve them. Goals should be consistent with our values.
Included in First Three Habits
Gerald Morris, Teacher, United States, Member After teaching this book, I believe that the first 3 habits include the setting of one's goals. I teach the students that the goal setting process, "begins with the end in mind", the goal and "put first things first" the achievement of the goal, must be in alignment with their values. The addition of an eighth habit is, in my opinion, unnecessary.
