Illuminated Much? (7 Habits of Highly Effective People)

So I'm 10 classes away from earning my B.A. in Ministry Leadership. (Yay!)

In my current class, one of our texts is 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (By Stephen Covey).

At first, I rolled my eyes at it and checked it off as another boring ass required text.

But the more I got into it, the more I realized "hey, this book is actually kinda... the shit!"

I can identify with something in every chapter.

In particular, Habit #5: Seek First To Understand, Then Be Understood.

It's a lot of mumbo-jumbo about active listening and paying attention to what someone is saying (on an emotional level).


Since I've been exercising this habit, there have been significant changes in how I communicate with loved ones.

From Rob, to my brother, to my Granny...

It's interesting: if you really just sit back and let someone talk, they will reveal who they are (and vice versa).
Not much to really talk about today so
Enjoy the pics!
