“The habits we choose to live by can shape our lives and define who we are.” – Stephen Covey

As software developers, our habits can greatly impact our success and the quality of our work. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a book written by Stephen Covey that outlines key habits that successful people have in common.

Last year we discussed these from a negative sense, talking about 7 habits of unsuccessful people. These 7 habits are ones that were not developed but discovered when looking at the most successful people and what they have in common. The most successful people will exhibit each of these habits in one way or another in their lives and/or careers.

Each of these habits can be applied to your life and career. From being proactive and beginning with the end in mind, to putting first things first and thinking win-win, these habits can help you become more effective, improve your relationships, and achieve your goals faster. By seeking first to understand and synergizing with others, you can foster creativity and build stronger relationships. And by sharpening the saw and taking care of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, you can maintain a healthy work-life balance and continuously improve your skills and abilities. Use this information to adopt these habits and become the most effective version of you.
