Highly Effective People

Hello! Happy Saturday 🙂 I hope you are having a great day so far, although it is almost evening here in Alberta. I’ve had a pretty relaxed day so far and I started reading a new book! I have heard about this book, but have never picked it up to dig into it myself. I love reading and it is something that I do want to incorporate more into my evenings, instead of turning on Netflix. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with Netflix time. However, I tend to say “I want to read more”, but then I turn on Netfilx after the kids have gone to bed instead of picking up said book that I want to read, it is rather destructive to my goals. Some habits are hard to break aren’t they, the comfy ones that you just fall back on when you know you want to make changes in your life.

Anyways! On to the book that I just opened up to day. The name of the book is called “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey. It is the original book, but has been updated with insights by his son Sean Covey. I so far have only gotten past the Preface and have started on “Part One – Inside Out”. I want to get better at completing things that I start and follow through on the things that I say I want to do, but don’t make time for. Do you want to make changes in any area of your life? What areas would you like to change? Here are some things that I would like to accomplish before 2021 rings in:

  • Get back to pre-baby weight
  • Read more books, watch less Netflix. Sorry Netflix, I just can’t spend that much time with you anymore.
  • I love creating and designing, so I would like to get at least one of my sketched outfits brought to life!

Those are just a few ideas of things that I want to accomplish, I don’t want to overwhelm my self with too many things to focus on right now or I won’t get anything done. I work full time and have a family to care for, so I need to be smart with the “free” time I have every day.

Back to the book! Have you read the book? Would you like to read along with me? If so, please request to join my FREE Facebook group where we will be discussing the book and encouraging each other to make the changes that you desire!

I look forward to seeing you in the group! But if you don’t want to join the group, be sure to follow along my facebook page where I will be sharing little nuggets from the book.

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!
