The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Relationships

 

Everybody knows Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
But only a select few of us know the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Relationships.

These 7 Habits of Highly Effective Relationships help us gain insights into how to lead an effective personal life with your partner:

 Habit 1:  Be Proactive

This is the foundation for the rest of the 6 habits. A proactive person chooses his behaviors overriding schools of determinism, and making free choices. Rather than wear your first choice of clothing for an elegant evening, wear your third choice. That way, you avoid suggestions and criticisms from you partner for stylish outerwear.

 Habit 2:  Begin with the End in Mind

This habit creates a clear vision of direction of where to focus on in the destination of attaining your goals. Choose clothing that gives you a slim, tasteful look.

 Habit 3:  Put First Things First

By staying disciplined and maximizing self-control, apologize to your partner for things you did not do.

 Habit 4:  Think Win-Win

Assert your leadership and initiate actions that take your partner’s perspective. Do all of the things your partner does not tell you to do.

 Habit 5:  Seek first to understand, then be understood.
 
This principal of interpersonal relationships requires honest communication. Before turning out the lights to go to bed every night, turn to you partner and say, “I’m sorry.”

 Habit 6:  Synergize.

This is the habit of creative cooperation. Refrain from asking your partner “Do you have to do that now?”

 Habit 7:  Sharpen your saw
 
This last habit ensures our engagement in personal renewal. When your partner says she or he wants to have sex in the back seat of your car, make sure you are not driving.
