Here are 99 Habits of Highly Effective People.

How Covey ever made it Seven Habits, is hard to imagine. So many areas of life to cover, so much that is needed to make a person effective including their sex life, sport life etc … unless Covey is a bit shy about sex…and its impact on productivity.. or is that what he calls “sharpening the saw?”

So here’s my 99 habits and I could have written another 99 … makes a great check list

  1. Unlearn some judgement on self and other everyday.
  2. Learn something about the one thing you want to be world champion at.
  3. Know what you want to be world champion at.
  4. Order your life in alignment with your values.
  5. Be mentally challenged only by your top three values.
  6. Delegate, deputise your bottom 3 values.
  7. Go to nature 4 times a day, put up, shut up, shut down, connect, be one and connected
  8. Write 5 statements on a sheet of paper you want to be true.
  9. Read 5 statements that you want to be true from a sheet of paper 5 times a day.
  10. Be 100% aware of smells – your scent, fragrance, environment, breath, taste in mouth.
  11. Don’t build what you love, build what clients love – success is this
  12. Get what you want from relationship by giving your partner what they want – feed your values thru theirs.
  13. Treat your daily body health like you want your body to last healthy to 100 years, not just tomorrow.
  14. Clarify and be absolutely certain about what you want to be remembered for when you pass away.
  15. Break all delusions about duality (pleasure without pain) Good without Bad, Right without Wrong.
  16. Emotional mindfulness – see yourself in others – don’t stumble or be distracted by avoidance or attraction.
  17. Know how to Turn Up – in other words – know how to stop observing and instead participate.
  18. Don’t allow the Royal “I”ness run your life.
  19. Set goals and sub goals and daily habits to align (this is single most important)
  20. Love simple things in life.
  21. Be thankful for the good and the bad equally.

  31. Know where you’ve come from and appreciate the progress.
  32. Know that you’ll always want to be somewhere else (itchy feet and greener pastures) – nobody wants to be where they are… (cause of all suffering on earth)
  33. Always laugh at yourself, and enjoy criticism, negativity as essential feedback … use it to UnLEARN
  34. Get more sleep than you think you need (put some in reserve)
  35. Meditate before you need to medicate (Ie use meditation instead of grog)
